Sliced bread has nothing on the offline-capable SharePoint Workbench. You don't need to stand up a dev/test environment or a playground online tenant.

It's been announced to start releasing to First Release tenants third quarter this year. More info @ https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/04/the-sharepoint-framework-an-open-and-connected-platform/.

@Robert Woods If I were you, I would hold off the project at least until Microsoft Ignite where we should have a more clear picture about when the new stuff is going to be released...and when I say new stuff I'm not only referring to the new Framework but also to the new Team Sites, the new pages, etc. As @Waldek Mastykarz has said the new Framework is supposed to be released at some time in the summer...indeed, you should have a message in Office 365 message center saying just this

Another approach that you could choose @Robert Woods would be to proceed with your project but postpone branding discussion until later and avoid using Custom Actions or other things that are currently blocking the modern UX. While these things will get clarified eventually it's hard to tell when exactly and delaying the implementation of the uncertain pieces could prevent you from spending time and effort no something that would block you later on.

Does this mean .Net is no longer supported? While progress marches on I will miss the .Net option. We only have limited developer resource and for us we've been able to use essentially the same original codebase for standalone asp.net sites, SharePoint application pages, examples of SharePoint add-ins and more recently Azure AD apps over several years.

I had. The message I got was basically Server Side Bad, Client Side Good. That's fair enough as that seems to be the way of things and has been for some time, I just worry a little over the future of .net as a whole. It will be intersting to see how .net Core fares.
