This is the first alpha release from the long-awaited v3 branch. This is a big overhaul (and still in progress). Internals are being modernized whilst still trying to keep sane upgrade path.
A big thank you goes to Mike Rousos (opens new window) who really made it possible to get Quartz.NET working on .NET Core. Daniel Marbach (opens new window) also contributed a lot with ideas and code to async side. And of course never forgetting the community members that have provided feedback and fixes.
Please see the migration guide that is a work in progess.
Use at your own risk, might not be that production ready yet
