Uno Platform is a handy tool for developers that already let them write a single codebase for apps across Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Now, you can add Linux to that list.

"The new addition makes it the first and only C# UI toolkit to enable creation of single-source applications for most popular desktop, web and mobile platforms," Uno Platform said in a press release. To show off the new integration, Uno Platform released a video showing a Windows Community Toolkit app running on Linux on a Raspberry Pi.
The update to version 3.0 also includes the Material and Fluent Design Systems out of the box to be used across all mobile, desktop, and web experiences created with Uno Platform. Here's a look at all the other improvements in Uno Platform 3.0:

- Windows 7 support via Skia backend
- New Fluent UI cross-platform symbols
