Cake v0.16.2 released

Version 0.16.2 of Cake has been released.

Following the release of Cake v0.16.1, Redth identified an issue with Cake not being identified as a .NET assembly when launched from a Mono process. With the help of akoeplinger we identified the issue in the Mono runtime and the PE32+ format assemblies generated by Roslyn/csc.exe when targeting x64 (which is the default in .NET Core project.json toolchain). akoeplinger has already submitted a pull request to Mono for this, so we expect this to be fixed in future versions of Mono, meanwhile the workaround is to set platform to use AnyCPU explicitly in the project.json file.

As a result, v0.16.2 of Cake is now available.

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