1. Issue with Timestamp fields in PostgreSQL

Hi, I tried today migrating to latest version of the framework (11.0.1) end there are couple of issues

We are usign PostgreSQL as a DB. After switching to .NET core 6.0 I also upgraded Npgsql.EntityFrameworkCore.PostgreSQL to version 6. When I started aspnet-core part, I got error:

InvalidCastException: Cannot write DateTime with Kind=Local to PostgreSQL type 'timestamp with time zone', only UTC is supported

I was able to get around the issue by adding this into Configure() method of Startup.cs but I am not sure if this is correct way to do it.

    // workaround for issue when switched to .NET 6.0: 'InvalidCastException: Cannot write DateTime with Kind=Local to PostgreSQL type 'timestamp with time zone', only UTC is supported'
    // solution found here:
    AppContext.SetSwitch("Npgsql.EnableLegacyTimestampBehavior", true);

2. Links that suppose to open in new tab do not work in Default Theme, but work in Theme 2

One of the Menu items we added is link to external web page that opens in new tab. To achieve this we set externalLink to true in AppMenuItem:

new AppMenuItem('Helpdesk - New Tab', 'Pages.Tenant.Helpdesk.InNewTab', 'flaticon-book', 'https://EXTERNAL_URL_HERE', [], [], true)

Nothing happens when this menu item is clicked. Nothing is recorded in Console as well.

However, if I pick 'Theme 2', external link is correctly opened in new link. Can you please take a look and advice if this is right way to achieve opening external URL in a new tab.

Another minor issue is that although I downloaded version 11.0.1, version strings in the app still say: 11.0.0

Thanks and Regards, Predrag

    In the meanwhile I managed to get around issue #2 by changing external link opening functionality in side-bar-menu.component.html like this:

                *ngIf="!item.items.length && item.external"
                class="menu-link menu-toggle"
                    [ngTemplateOutletContext]="{ item: item, parentItem: parentItem }"

    ... and defining openInNewTab() method in side-bar-menu.component.ts:

    openInNewTab(url) {
  , '_blank').focus();

    However It is still not clear to me why the existing functionality to opening external links in side-bar-menu.component.html won't work, and at the same time, very similar code in top-bar-menu.component.html works fine. Anyhow, hopefully you guys can provide some insight.

    Also, one more issue found:

    3. Dockerfile.original in aspnet-core stil references aspnet 5.0

    It worked fine when I changed it to 6.0
