Cake v1.0.0-rc0002 released

Version 1.0.0-rc0002 of Cake has been released.

This is the second, and probably last, pre-release version of Cake 1.0. Focus in this release has been to bring Cake Frosting up to speed, align it with the Cake script runners and bug fixes.

We've chosen to release 1.0 as a pre-release to NuGet and Chocolatey, so we and the community can more easily test and ensure that our 1.0 release will be as stable as possible. It will also enable us to see if there are any steps you need to take to adapt your scripts for 1.0, and for us to see if there're any unintended breaking changes, by testing as many addins, modules, and recipes as possible.

CakeHostBuilder has been removed. With Cake.Frosting 1.0 CakeHost can be used directly to create the CakeHost object.

With Cake.Frosting 0.38.x:

With Cake.Frosting 1.0:

In preparation for the 1.0 release, we've now set the recommended version of Cake.Core for addins to target to 1.0.

This won't break the build but you might see warnings like below when Addins/Modules are loaded.

Addin authors can start preparing for the 1.0 release by starting to build against Cake.Core version 1.0.0-rc0002.

See Upgrade instructions for documentation about breaking changes in this release.

Cake makes a number of assumptions about files and directories in your project. If you're adding Cake to a brand new project then that isn't a problem, but what happens if you're adding Cake to a 'legacy' project that is already using some of these locations?
