Version 2.3.0 of Cake has been released. Take it for a spin and give us feedback on our discussion board.

This release includes new features, improvements and bug fixes to both Cake Scripting and Cake Frosting since the Cake v2.2.0 release! 🚀 🍰

Script cache introduced in v2.2.0 has been improved to support parallel builds and multiple versions of the same script even when the cache is in a globally shared location.

While Cake support many tools out of the box or via the many available addins, there will always be tools or scenarios where you need to execute a custom tool, while this is already possible using the StartProcess alias, you need to write custom code for things like i.e. tool resolution, exit code handling, and handling command output.

To solve this we've in this release introduced the Command alias which fills the gap in-between StartProcess and the out-of-the-box typed aliases, it lets you benefit from Cake's built-in tool resolution making it easier to support tools with different executables i.e. Posix/Windows or installed using tool directive. It will default fail the build on non-zero exit codes, and also provides more convenient access to standard output/error. A few Command alias examples below, and several more in the features pull request.

This release was made possible thanks to the Cake team and the contribution of these awesome members of the Cake community listed below:
