Cake v0.16.0 released

17 September 2016
Release Notes

Version 0.16.0 of Cake has been released, and it's a big release!

Not only are we supporting the full .NET framework (v4.5), but from this version we will also support running Cake on platforms capable of running .NET Core (netstandard1.6).

For this to work, you will have to install the Cake.CoreCLR package instead of the normal Cake package. A blog post describing this more in detail will be published soon.

Please let us know if you run into any issues with this latest release.
