The Cake Team are very proud to announce that the .cake file extension has now become a first class citizen on the GitHub Website. Starting today, your *.cake files will now appear with full syntax highlighting, in the came way that your *.cs files currently do.

Huge thanks have to go to Jonathan Dick (a.k.a Redth) who has been instrumental in getting the .cake file extension support in GitHub.

As a result of his hard work, instead of seeing your build.cake file looking like this:

build.cake file without highlighting

You will now see it looking like this:
