WCF 5 for .NET Core
WCF is Microsoft’s unified programming model for building service-oriented applications. It support multiple transport protocols (HTTP, TCP, UDP, and custom transports) and allows switching between them (ASP.NET Web API for http/https/websockets only). Supports building services with WS-* standards like Reliable Messaging, Transactions, Message Security.
In Enterprise Apps WCF remains very popular.
Please impliment new WCF version for new .NET Core and continue support old WCF (4.6) like ASP.NET 4.6 supports for Full .NET and ASP.NET 5 only for .NET Core.

Agreed. Please port WCF services to the .Net Core platform.

Kindly add my vote to include WCF in .Net Core.
Just to clarify, in addition to WCF Core for .NET Core, WCF on Full .NET Framework will be continuously fully supported. If you have any suggestion for WCF on Full .NET Framework, you can still use uservoice to provide your feedback.
Please provide WCF Server (ServiceHost'ing capability) to .NET Core. Many enterpises uses WCF for SOA integration with partners (WS-* standards) so it would be extremely useful to jump on latest framework, enable hosting on another platforms.
Thanks Anatoliy. We appreciate this feedback. I've responded to this suggestion at http://forums.dotnetfoundation.org/t/wcf-5-for-net-core-5/1223. For specific features of WCF that are important to you, feel free to open new issues in GitHub at https://github.com/dotnet/wcf/issues/new, and our team will factor them into our planning.
