.NET 5 impact

.NET 5 is now part of Visual Studio 2019 16.8.x installation and thus default .NET Core when building your projects.

This can break some projects without .NET Core version pinning.

To build your projects with the latest .NET Core 3.1 add global.json to the root of project repository (or working folder from which dotnet or msbuild commands are run) with the following contents:

{
  "sdk": {
    "version": "3.1.102",
    "rollForward": "latestFeature"
  }
}
