Release Notes: November 18, 2015

DNX Runner 2.1 RC 1

As of RC1, the Visual Studio tooling for class library projects will use the net451 and dotnet5.4 frameworks in your project.json file. Unit tests are a special kind of platform-specific class library, so you must use the dnx451 and dnxcore50 framework names when writing unit tests; otherwise, the xunit.runner.dnx dependency will cause package restore failures.

For more information, please see the Getting Started documentation.
