Upgrading ASP.NET 5 Beta 8 to RC1

ASP.NET 5 Kestrel Web Server

"ASP.NET 5 comes with built-in support for running on IIS (Microsoft.AspNet.Server.IIS), directly on a thin HTTP.SYS wrapper (Microsoft.AspNet.Server.Web­Listener), and on a new .NET cross-platform Web server called Kestrel (Microsoft.AspNet.Server.Kestrel).
The Katana Project ( was Microsoft’s initial effort to implement support for OWIN, and many of the ideas and concepts in ASP.NET 5 were derived from it. Katana had a similar model for building up a middleware pipeline and for hosting on multiple servers. However, unlike Katana, which exposed the low-level OWIN abstractions directly to the developer, ASP.NET 5 instead bridges from OWIN to more convenient and user-friendly abstractions. With a little extra code you can still use Katana middleware in ASP.NET 5 using the OWIN bridge"
