Vue.js use proper CDN
Now the Vue.js using the proper CDN, which is jsDelivr. jsDelivr provides mirrors for npm, GitHub, WordPress plugins, and custom endpoints for several other projects with special requirements. We think it is the fastest CDN and it works in China also. Note that most of the CDNs don't work in China.

.NET Core 3.0 Preview 7
.NET Core 3.0 Preview 7 released this week. You can think about this release as the RC (Release Candidate) version of .NET Core because this was the latest version where the developers added new features to the framework. From now only bug fixes and minor changes will come until the GA (General Availability) of .NET Core 3.0, that is scheduled for September 2019.
You can see that the new version support Visual Studio 2019 and .NET Core 3.0 should be used with the latest previews of Visual Studio. So, don't forget: if you try out .NET Core 3.0, use the latest preview of Visual Studio 2019. Other versions of Visual Studio 2019 are not recommended, but you can enable .NET Core SDK previews in Visual Studio. This article explains how can you do that.
If you may not have heard: the community might ship the RC version of Orchard Core when the .NET Core 3.0 is shipped because it will be faster and will contain more features. So from now, the community can start working on to update Orchard Core to .NET Core 3.0 preview. That will be a huge change, but it is one of the most important updates of Orchard Core RC.

Adding IShellConfiguration documentation
Orchard Core extends ASP.NET Core IConfiguration with IShellConfiguration. Understanding IShellConfiguration maybe not so trivial for the first time, so it's very helpful to make a documentation about it. Thanks to Dean Marcussen for the docs!
