Version 0.17.0 of Cake has been released.

This release of Cake sees a number of new features added, as well as some bug fixes, however, most importantly, there was a breaking change.

This breaking change centred around the VSTestSettings class, where the decision was wait to allow custom loggers to be passed into the VSTestRunner. As a result, the previous enumeration named VSTestLogger has been removed, and replaced with a fully customizable string. If you are using this enumeration in your scripts then you will see errors being generated if you update to the latest version of Cake. You should be able to make use of the new extension methods called WithVisualStudioLogger and WithAppVeyorLogger on the VSTestSettings to replace the enumeration values.

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

Once again, the Cake Team have been overwhelmed by the number of contributions from our Community Members. Simply put... THANK YOU!

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.

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.
