Hi, I am new in the room. my first question. I want to use the actor system in my software design, starting from small apps, it means to use it in-process. I work with the .Net Core. Is the basic Akka.Net module updated for the .Net Core ( as I know not all libraries are updated yet) ? is the core library the minimum that I need only to run it in-process ? if both questions are positive how I can obtain the basic library, compatible with .Net Core ?

So far Akka.Net is not yet Net.Core compatible. The team is working hard to get us that gem.

I had read it, for this reason I asked. I can work with the alpha for the moment. Or to design it with the full .net and to test it also with the alpha for .net core. For an in-process system, ( a desktop client with local actors), I think I need the basic lib, I am not sure If I would use the Persistence, and I don't know about the tests.

I'm currently trying to learn the F# API, and I am working with a pattern where a parent manages many children.
Is there an idiomatic way to work with child actors in F#? So far I've only found mailbox.Context.Child("child").

@stefan2410 I think the core package and the Teskit are working on .net core, for persistence main problem are the db drivers. @alexvaluyskiy knows more

In Akka, is it possible for a an actor to be addressed by two different paths?
For example, in a chat system I may have a User actor and a Room actor.
Logically, the user might be referenced under a global /users route ("/user/users/my-user")
But once a user joins a room, it might also make sense to try and access the user through the room(s) it is a part of
"/user/rooms/room-name/users/my-user"
