How can we make our site better?

When browsing .Net standard, show the minimum version a namespace is introduced

It would be great to be able to see the first/minimum version that a namespace is introduced. This way, if you are browsing and realize that you really only need .Net Standard 1.3 instead of 1.6, for example, you can see that quickly without having to flip back and forth. Alternatively, having a feature comparison chart where 2+ .Net versions are selected and their namespaces are compared would serve the same purpose.

        With the old site (apisof.net) you were able to see the availability of a type or a methods across all sdks. For instance if you search for Type.isAbstract (https://apisof.net/catalog/System.Type.IsAbstract), you can see that its not available in any netstandard versions (until 2.0). This feature was also useful to show the minimum netstandard version that supported a type / method.

        With the new documentation site, once you find a type / method, you have to toggle between all the different sdks and versions to work out this information

        I totally agree on that, moreover it would be great to have more TFM info in search results, especially when searching using "All APIs", because OK it found something, but can't quickly acknowledge where a found API is available (and thus where it is not)

        Anyway, great job MS, this doc browser is awesome! Thanks a lot!
