Microsoft is going to replace Xamarin Community Toolkit with .NET MAUI Community Toolkit. It will be backwards compatible version of the Xamarin Community Toolkit.

As they say it is a new Community Toolkit library that is fully optimized for .NET MAUI.

Microsoft will be releasing two NuGet Packages:

  • CommunityToolkit.Maui
  • CommunityToolkit.Maui.Markup

Like the Xamarin Community Toolkit, the .NET MAUI Community Toolkit is fully open-source and community supported!



To help developers avoid breaking changes when porting Xamarin.Forms apps to .NET MAUI, Microsoft will release two .NET MAUI-Compatible versions of the Xamarin Community Toolkit:

  • Xamarin.CommunityToolkit.MauiCompat
  • Xamarin.CommunityToolkit.Markup.MauiCompat

Sunsetting Xamarin.CommunityToolkit

Following the same schedule as Xamarin.Forms, Microsoft will continue to service Xamarin Community Toolkit through November 2022.

They will continue accepting pull requests adding new features until September 2021 and will continue accepting pull requests fixing bugs and publish service releases through November 2022.

The source code for Xamarin Community Toolkit will remain in its current GitHub Repository in the Xamarin GitHub Organization:



It’s time to start playing with .NET MAUI framework and all the packages.
