Whats new in Orleans 8 for Scalable Distributed Applications

Orleans is a cross-platform framework for building robust, scalable distributed applications. Orleans 8 introduces new features including live migration of grains and IAsyncEnumerable support. The recent Orleans 8.1.0 release includes Resource Optimized Placement Strategy and Orleans support in Aspire. Live migration allows grains to move between silos without losing in-memory state and is useful for cluster upgrades. The IGrainMigrationParticipant interface defines methods for dehydrating and rehydrating in-memory state during migration. Orleans continues to enhance its capabilities for distributed application development.
