Version 1.0.0-rc0001 of Cake has been released

This version is the 110th release of Cake, but the first pre-release of Cake 1.0🎉 In this blog post, we will go through some of the major new features of 1.0, which platforms are supported, and how you can help to get Cake 1.0 released.

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.

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

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.

Version 0.37.0 of Cake has been released.

In this version we've got a few improvements and one bug fix, full list of changes at end of this post.

🎉 But first we would like to share a small milestone, Cake.Tool, the .NET Global tool version of Cake script runner, has now been downloaded over one million times from NuGet.org, we've seen some real uptake lately and are really excited about that. Cake.Tool has some nice additions, C# 8 support being one of the biggest.

🍰Huge thanks to our community! It wouldn't have been possible without your support and contributions!❤

Version 0.36.0 of Cake has been released.

A new year, a new release, this marks the first Cake release for 2020, a release packed with several features, improvements and fixes, full details of contents of this release at end of blog post.

As always a huge thanks to our awesome community! This project wouldn't be sustainable without your contributions and feedback❤

A big focus in this release has been in improved .NET Core 3 runtime support and better handling of native dependencies like i.e. SQL Server client.

We're also very happy to welcome Jérémie Desautels as a new Cake core team member! His contributions to the Cake ecosystem have been invaluable, especially his work with Cake.AddinDiscoverer which inventories new addins and makes sure existing ones follow best practices. This ensures a healthier, more robust and high quality experience for you as a Cake user. It also ensures better discoverability as new addins will now automatically generate a pull request to our website to be documented, addins unlisted from NuGet will automatically generate a pull request for removal from the site and a full audit report is published to cake-contrib/Home repo.
