We released the first Early Access build for the .NET Framework 4.8 last month (June-2018) and are happy to announce the next build (3632) for your feedback. This is one of the in-development builds of the next version of the .NET Framework and includes incremental fixes from the last build (3621).

This pre-release build (3632) includes quality and reliability fixes for BCL, Runtime, SQL Connectivity, Winforms, and WPF. You can view the complete list of improvements in this build in the release notes.
Few things to note:
- This build (3632) is not supported for production use. This is a Preview build and should be used for internal testing only.
- This build will upgrade any older .NET Framework 4.X installation on your machine. This means all .NET Framework 4 and later applications on your machine will run on the .NET Framework early access build upon installation
- The build will only install on the following Windows and Windows Server versions and is not supported on other platforms:
- Latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build (RS5)
- Windows 10 April 2018 Update
- Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
- Windows 10 Creators Update
- Windows 10 Anniversary Update

We’d appreciate you taking the time to report any new issues to us on GitHub so we can address them before the official release.
