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.

Cake v0.38.5 released

Version 0.38.5 of Cake has been released.

In this version, we've just addressed an issue where the upcoming .NET 5 wasn't identified as .NET Core application but .NET 4 / Mono.

This could cause issues with Cake.Tool for example when running .NET Framework executable on non-Windows platforms or scripts reused cross-runtime.

Even though .NET 5 isn't released, we choose to release this as a hotfix so early adopters wouldn't hit this roadblock, but also for our own dogfooding - as we're building Cake with Cake and have started the process of porting Cake to .NET 5.

Version 0.38.3 of Cake has been released...in 0.38.4.

Because of a configuration error the hot fixes didn't go into 0.38.3, we corrected this in 0.38.4.

In this version, we are releasing two bug fixes that were identified after shipping our 0.38.2 release. One is a fix for how braces are escaped in console messages and the other is ensuring valid dates in zip files.
