    It has been a great and exciting week! With the acquisition of Xamarin it is a certainty that this vote will be actualized, much to our delight and celebration. In fact, at this point it will be a disappointment if there is not an announcement at //build or Evolve that declares this very ask as under development in some fashion.

    With that said, everything is in place for a dominant, successful MSFT .NET developer force in the marketplace again. Rightfully so! Happy days are on their way! The ONLY element/component that is now missing and accounted for is a web/browser-hosted .NET client model. Please vote for this here:

    Thank you all for your past and continued support!

    It seems as if this idea/suggestion has been marked as Under Review. First off, an INCREDIBLE amount of appreciation and respect -- and, well, LOVE -- goes out to the Visual Studio team for recognizing this issue and for their willingness to take a deeper look into it. It really means a lot to your developers who have struggled for so long without a viable .NET client model since the days of Silverlight, and are looking to leverage their countless hours and dollars of investment into .NET by way of a powerful, cross-platform, and ubiquitous solution.

    It is also great to see that you will review a possible counter to combat the market/business/existential threat posed by NodeJS. As you know, NodeJS has started to pull organizations and developers away from .NET, as it can be utilized in a cross-platform fashion, enabling solutions for browser-hosted, native/store-hosted (via Cordova), and server-hosted scenarios.

    Additionally, if anyone is interested, more thoughts around this update have been chronicled here:

    Although this is simply a status change to "Under Review," this has surpassed any expectation held when this vote was created a little over four months ago. Thank you again SO MUCH for your consideration and support to everyone involved!
