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
#module references in Cake files.
Big thanks go to the people behind WhiteSource Renovate for getting this done so quickly!Read more...

Using a GitHub Action it is now possible to utilize that work-in-progress to check Cake scripts for outdated references.Read more...
When I started working on Cake in 2014, I did it to scratch an itch I had. Fake existed (which has been a tremendous initial inspiration), but I didn't know F# enough to be confident enough to bet our build process on it. A lot has happened since then; .NET has changed, and so has Cake. We've moved from a separate
Mono engine to a unified one based on
Roslyn. We've added support for
8, and just recently
9. In addition to
.NET Framework, we've added support for every version of
.NET Core, from the early beta to .NET 5. The project has also gone from a single maintainer to nine, which I think is the biggest reason for its success.
