Release Notes

Version 0.37.0 of Cake has been released.

In this version we've got a few improvements and one bug fix, full list of changes at end of this post.

🎉 But first we would like to share a small milestone, Cake.Tool, the .NET Global tool version of Cake script runner, has now been downloaded over one million times from, we've seen some real uptake lately and are really excited about that. Cake.Tool has some nice additions, C# 8 support being one of the biggest.

🍰Huge thanks to our community! It wouldn't have been possible without your support and contributions!❤
