WhiteSource Renovate is a solution for automating dependency updates in software projects which works (among others) hosted in GitHub (much like dependabot does).

In the new version 24.114.0 Renovate added support for Cake files!

So, as of now it is possible to have pull requests automatically created to update #addin, #tool and #module references in Cake files.

Big thanks go to the people behind WhiteSource Renovate for getting this done so quickly!

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.
