Version 0.34.1 of Cake has been released.

This is just a minor release as a hotfix to address an issue breaking scripts when the dynamic C# keyword was used in build scripts. This was a side effect of updating from Roslyn 2.x to 3.x.

Thanks dieterv for reporting! All contributions are appreciated❤.

BTW this is the 100th Cake release! 🎉

Version 0.34.0 of Cake has been released.

First we would like to say a delayed happy birthday to Cake, in May it was five years since the first release of Cake.

It's been a great journey building a truly fully cross platform and cross environment build system, utilizing the power of C# and .NET giving the same experience regardless of running locally, running on build server, in a container, on .NET Framework, .NET Core, Mono etc.

This journey wouldn't have been possible without an amazing community of contributors and users, we're really thankful for your support and we're just amazed with the fact that the runtime has been downloaded over five million times on NuGet, Docker Hub, Chocolatey and Homebrew.

We are no way near the end of the journey and believe it or not there's great progress on version 1.0, you can follow the work on version 1.0 in this pr.

In this version we've several features, improvements and bug fixes, full details below but a few highlights in this release:

Version 0.33.0 of Cake has been released.

In this version we had contributions from 21 contributors outside of the core Cake Team members! This is an amazing number, and we thank everyone for their contributions!

During this release, all the Cake Team Members were in the same place at the same time (at the Microsoft MVP Summit), and we were able to sit together around the same table and discuss a number of the outstanding PR's that we had on the repository. We were able to get down from 26 open PR's to just 5 (which has now increased again to 7). It was great to meet all the team members (some for the first time), and discuss the future of Cake. We have lots of plans for the future, and are all looking forward to continuing to contribute to the project.

This release see a number of long waited features being added, including the ability to use a globbing pattern within the #load directive. As well as this, a number of improvements were included, and a number of bugs squashed. All of these are detailed below in the release notes section.

If you have ever been interested in peeking behind the scenes at "how" we do a Cake Release, I actually did a live stream of the Cake 0.33.0 version. This is now published to my YouTube Channel, and you can watch it back here, if you are interested. We are aware that there are some steps in our release process that can be further automated, and this is one of the areas that you are likely to see some change in 2019. Watch this space!

If you mind any problems with this latest release, then please feel free to reach out via the normal channels, Gitter, GitHub, Stack Overflow, and Twitter.

Cake v0.32.0 released

Version 0.32.0 of Cake has been released.

This is the first release for 2019, but before we focus on the new, a short retrospect of 2018. In 2018 we had 11 releases of Cake, hundreds of PRs from over fifty individual contributors, hundreds of issues raised and closed, and millions of downloads. All in all, it sums up to an active and healthy community – which we’re very grateful for, thank you!

A trend we saw in 2018 was that more and more tools start to come as .NET Global tools (including Cake itself) and most of these have been added to Cake tool resolution, allowing you with minimal changes run in a pure .NET Core environment.

This release has several improvements and fixes, to note a few, Cake’s Zip archive functionality has been greatly improved, initial support for VS2019 / MSBuild 16 has been added, a complete list of changes can be found below.

Happy New Year!
