Version 2.2.0 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 v2.1.0 release! 🚀 🍰

The new opt-in script compilation cache is probably the most anticipated feature in this release, it enables significantly faster subsequent executions of unchanged scripts.

This new behavior is off by default, but can be enabled using Cake Configuration.

You can also configure where scripts are cached, useful i.e. if you want to cache scripts across repositories on a build agent, by default a cache folder within the standard Tools Path will be used.

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

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.
