Microsoft.Owin package does not support .NET Core


The Microsoft.Owin and Owin NuGet packages do not support .NET Core, being targeted at .NET 4.5 and .NET 4 respectively. Can we expect these packages to be updated anytime soon?

It would be nice to have the abstractions provided in Microsoft.Owin when writing middleware for ASP.NET 5 projects targeting .NET Core rather than relying on dictionaries and magic strings

There are not currently any plans to enable .NET Core support for any of the Katana projects. Most of them have already been replaced by Asp.Net 5 components. Microsoft.Owin hasn't been directly replaced but it should readily work for you on .NET Core if you want to copy the sources.
