@aspnet/signalr vs @microsoft/signalr javascript libraries

The package was simply moved over from @aspnet into the more broadly known @microsoft.

From now on, the correct package is @microsoft/signalr.

Looking at the version history for the two packages sheds light on the situation. Here are the latest releases for @microsoft/signalr:

  • 3.1.0-preview2.19528.8 - 4 days ago
  • 3.1.0-preview1.19508.20 - 21 days ago
  • 3.0.0 - a month ago
  • 3.0.0-rc1.19457.4 - 2 months ago
  • 3.0.0-preview9.19424.4 - 2 months ago
  • 3.0.0-preview8.19405.7 - 3 months ago
  • 3.0.0-preview7.19365.7 - 3 months ago

And here are the ones for @aspnet/signalr:

  • 3.0.0-preview6.19307.2 - 5 months ago
  • 3.0.0-preview5-19227-01 - 6 months ago
  • 3.0.0-preview4-19216-03 - 7 months ago

The move is further confirmed by the fact that the header for the @aspnet/signalr Github repository reads:

[Archived] Incredibly simple real-time web for ASP.NET Core. Project moved to https://github.com/aspnet/AspNetCore

Which is the repository backing the @microsoft/signalr package.
