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.

Full details of everything that was included in this release can be seen below.

It’s been an amazing journey since the push of the first public commit of Cake in May 2014, in just two years we’ve seen 72 releases, had more than 60 contributors, over a thousand issues and pull requests proposed. And on top of that a small eco system of more than 50 community provided Cake addins.

So firstly a huge thank you to all our contributors and adopters! This wouldn’t have been possible without you! It’s truly amazing to see the increase in contribution and adoption of Cake.

Today we’re really excited and happy to share that Cake is joining the .NET foundation!

So what does this mean for Cake? It’ll still be maintained and governed by the same team as now, but with the support and guidance of the .NET foundation, ensuring the longevity of the project.
