Added and Improvements New Features in C# 7.0 with Visual Studio 2017 -
1.     Added Binary Literal
2.     Added Digit Separators
3.     Added Pattern Matching
4.     Added Ref returns and ref Locals

6.     Local Function
7.     Throw Expressions

10. Deconstruction

Binary Literals -Improvements
int[] numbers = { 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 40 };
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b10000, 40 };

Digit Separators - Digit separators inside the numbers
Literal Digit Allows underscore (_) inside numbers
var x = 1234_5435;
var y = 0xABCD_EFG_IJ
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };

Tuples -
If you want write a common method that returns more than one value. It is add tuple types and tuple literals.
1.     Anonymous types return
2.     Dynamic return type
3.     Custom-built transport type

Example 1 -
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };
var tn = TallyNumber(numbers);

WriteLine($"Sum: {tn.Item1}, count: {tn.Item2}");

(int, int) TallyNumber(int[] values)
{
    var rest = (0, 0);

    return rest;
}

Example 2 -
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };
var tn = TallyNumber(numbers);

WriteLine($"Sum: {tn.sum}, count: {tn.count}");

(int sum, int count) TallyNumber(int[] values)
{
    var rest = (s:0, c: 0);
    return rest;
}

Example 3 -
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };
var(sum, count) = TallyNumber(numbers);

WriteLine($"Sum: {sum}, count: {count}");

(int sum, int count) TallyNumber(int[] values)
{
    var rest = (s:0, c: 0);
    foreach (var val in values)
    {
        rest = (rest.s + val, rest.c + 1);
    }

    return rest;
}

Example 4 -
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };
var(sum, count) = TallyNumber(numbers);

WriteLine($"Sum: {sum}, count: {count}");

(int sum, int count) TallyNumber(int[] values)
{
    var rest = (s:0, c: 0);
    foreach (var val in values)
    {
        Add(val, 1);
    }

    return rest;
    void Add(int s, int c) { rest.s += s; rest.c += c; }
}

Local Functions –
Functions inside other function bodies that are called local function.

Example -
int[] numbers = { 0b1, 0b10, 0b100, 0b1000, 0b1_0000, 4_0 };
var(sum, count) = TallyNumber(numbers);

WriteLine($"Sum: {sum}, count: {count}");

(int sum, int count) TallyNumber(int[] values)
{
    var rest = (s:0, c: 0);
    foreach (var val in values)
    {
        Add(val, 1);
    }

    return rest;
    void Add(int s, int c) { rest.s += s; rest.c += c; }
}

Pattern Matching -
1.     Enhancing two existing patterns-
2.     Is-expressions with patterns
3.     Switch case clauses with patterns

Example 1 -
public void PrintDollers(object obj)
{
    if (obj is null) return;     // This is the constant pattern "null"!
    if (!(obj is int k)) return; // This is the type pattern "int k";
   
   WriteLine(new string('$', k));
}

Example 2 -
// Switch on anything lie premitive, string etc.
switch (shape)
{
    case Rectangle sh when(sh.Length == sh.Height): WriteLine($"{sh.Length} x {sh.Height} square");
        break;
    default:
        WriteLine("<unknown shape found!>");
        break;
    case null:
        throw new ArgumentNullException(nameof(shape));
}

Deconstruction -

Example for deconstructing declaration -
(string firstName, string middleName, string lastName) = SearchName(id1); //deconstructing declaration
WriteLine($"found {firstName} {lastName}.");

Example for var inside -
(var firstName, var middleName, var lastName) = SearchName(id1);

Example for var outside -
var(firstName, middleName, lastName) = SearchName(id1);

Example for deconstructing assignment -
(firstName, middleName, lastName) = SearchName(id2);

Ref Returns and Locals –
Returning Values by Reference and It is a Kind of Pointers!
public class User
{
    public int ID { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Adress { get; set; }
    public override string ToString() { return $"{ID},{Age},{Name},{Adress}"; }
}

public static ref User FindUser(User U, User[] UList)
{
    for (int j = 0; j < UList.Length; j++)
        if (UList[j].ID == U.ID)
            return ref UList[j];

    throw new IndexOutOfRangeException($"{nameof(U)} not found");
}
