I hear a lot of about the impact of Roslyn on C# and VB. What about F#? I search this forum for F# and was surprised to find nothing.

F# is no longer a Microsoft language in the same way that C# or VB is.

You can ask that same question to the F# community at http://fsharp.org/

Or indeed you can ask the question the Visual fsharp team CodePlex site.

But since I'm here, I can answer the question for you. F# is most certainly a first class .NET language and fully supported by Microsoft. The F# team and Roslyn teams are both part of the managed languages team.

Visual F# is open sourced, and accepts contributions just like Roslyn, it has sufficient staff for it's workload. It has a great team of community MVPs, and a great partnership with the F# community at Fsharp.org.

Come check us out and help us make F# better and more popular.

Thank you
