SharpDX is a managed wrapper for the DirectX series of APIs including Direct 3D 9/11/12, Direct2D, DirectInput, XInput and more.  This library makes it easy to use DirectX libraries with languages such as C#, VB.net and more.  It is released under the incredibly flexible MIT open source license.  This release brings support for Visual Studio 2017 and perhaps most importantly, support for .NET core platform.


This new release of SharpDX contains:

  • Several bug fixes, see the full list below
  • A migration of the build system to VS 2017
  • Added support for the .NET Core Platform (netcoreapp1.0, netstandard1.1, uap10)

This release is the dedicated work of external contributors, thanks a lot for their work!

The binaries are accessible on nuget.
