The NuGet team at Microsoft introduced a concept known as "Package ID prefix reservation" for packages published on nuget.org, which allows developers to reserve particular package ID prefixes with a specific account/owner and offers a number of features that are described in detail on Microsoft's docs.

One of these features is that packages with a reserved prefix include a visual indicator for NuGet package consumers to identify that the packages they are consuming originate from package owners that have reserved the prefix.

Version 1.0.0-rc0003 of Cake has been released 🎉.

This is the third and last pre-release version of Cake 1.0. This release includes improvements and bug fixes to both Cake Scripting and Cake Frosting.

See also:

We've chosen to release 1.0 as a pre-release to NuGet and Chocolatey, so we and the community can more easily test and ensure that our 1.0 release will be as stable as possible. It will also enable us to see if there are any steps you need to take to adapt your scripts for 1.0, and for us to see if there're any unintended breaking changes, by testing as many addins, modules, and recipes as possible.

In this release the UseTool extension has been renamed to InstallTool. In our prior release candidate we also noted that CakeHostBuilder has been removed and CakeHost can be used directly.

With Cake.Frosting 0.38.x:

With Cake.Frosting 1.0:

In preparation for the 1.0 release, we've now set the recommended version of Cake.Core for addins to target to 1.0.

This won't break the build but you might see warnings like below when Addins/Modules are loaded.

Addin authors can start preparing for the 1.0 release by starting to build against Cake.Core version 1.0.0-rc0003.
