> Use new project system in "lib/csharp" and define supported platforms
> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: THRIFT-4541
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-4541
>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: Umbrella
>          Components: C# - Library
>            Reporter: Christian Weiss
>            Priority: Major
> As discussed in THRIFT-4535, it would be great if we could update 
> "lib/csharp" to use the new "csproj" project system. This will allow us to 
> target multiple platforms and the new ".NET Standard" with a single project.
> It's possible to support pretty much every platform there is with this new 
> project format (see e.g. 
> [Newtonsoft.Json|https://github.com/JamesNK/Newtonsoft.Json/blob/master/Src/Newtonsoft.Json/Newtonsoft.Json.csproj]),
>  however supporting older platforms requires more work as this requires more 
> #if statements etc.
> This means that we have to decide which platforms we want to support!
> Targeting ".NET Standard 2.0" would be the easiest option as this version 
> [covers a much larger API 
> surface|https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2017/08/14/announcing-net-standard-2-0/].
>  However, this would also mean that people have to use rather recent versions 
> of their platforms to use it, as .NET Standard 2.0 requires the following 
> minimum versions:
>  * .NET 4.6.1 (adding support for .NET 4.5 is no problem though)
>  * .NET Core 2.0
>  * Mono 5.4
>  * Xamarin.iOS 10.14
>  * Xamarin.Mac 3.8
>  * Xamarin.Android 8.0
>  * UWP 10.0.16299
> I will create a PR that targets .NET Standard 2.0 and .NET 4.5 to show what 
> the new project files would look like. If the approach is OK for you in 
> general, then I can try to add support for whatever minimum versions you'd 
> like to support.
