    And I wonder if I moved my production development to 17.8.1 it will support also .net 7 based MAUI applications ?

    .Net 7 is still supported in VS 17.8.1, and this version mainly modifies some parts of CMAKE, and parts of MAUI are not affected.

    You can see the specific updates for each version of VS in Visual Studio 2022 version 17.8 Release Notes.

    • The updated version of IncrediBuild fixes an issue where building CMake projects using the standard build menu commands would incorrectly redirect the build to use IncrediBuild by default.
