Version 0.38.2 of Cake has been released.

In this version we are releasing a small bug fix which was identified after shipping our 0.38.0 release.

One of the new features that shipped in 0.38.0 was support for ANSI escape codes. Turns out, this feature breaks the service message logging in some CI systems. The problem was identified when Cake was running in TeamCity, but it is possible that other systems are affected.

Cake v0.38.0 released

Version 0.38.0 of Cake has been released.

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

One of the main features is the enabling of ANSI escape codes. Cake will now automatically detect whether a CI system supports ANSI escape codes, and if it does it will use them, rather than using System.Console.ForegroundColor, or similar. This gives a much richer output on systems such as GitHub Actions.

Within the timeframe of this release, we were very happy to welcome Enrico Campidoglio into the Cake Team. Enrico is the person behind the creation of the GitHub Action for Cake, which has now been brought into the Cake GitHub Organisation. We are very grateful to Enrico for the work in creating this action! Welcome to the Team!

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

Version 0.33.0 of Cake has been released.

In this version we had contributions from 21 contributors outside of the core Cake Team members! This is an amazing number, and we thank everyone for their contributions!

During this release, all the Cake Team Members were in the same place at the same time (at the Microsoft MVP Summit), and we were able to sit together around the same table and discuss a number of the outstanding PR's that we had on the repository. We were able to get down from 26 open PR's to just 5 (which has now increased again to 7). It was great to meet all the team members (some for the first time), and discuss the future of Cake. We have lots of plans for the future, and are all looking forward to continuing to contribute to the project.

This release see a number of long waited features being added, including the ability to use a globbing pattern within the #load directive. As well as this, a number of improvements were included, and a number of bugs squashed. All of these are detailed below in the release notes section.

If you have ever been interested in peeking behind the scenes at "how" we do a Cake Release, I actually did a live stream of the Cake 0.33.0 version. This is now published to my YouTube Channel, and you can watch it back here, if you are interested. We are aware that there are some steps in our release process that can be further automated, and this is one of the areas that you are likely to see some change in 2019. Watch this space!

If you mind any problems with this latest release, then please feel free to reach out via the normal channels, Gitter, GitHub, Stack Overflow, and Twitter.

Version 0.27.1 of Cake has been released.

This is a hotfix release of Cake. Following the release of Cake 0.27.0 it was noted that there was an issue with loading some dependencies, which would result in a Stack Overflow exception. This was first noted here, and also here.

As a result of these issues being raised, a bug was identified in the ScriptAssemblyResolver.cs where it could end up in an endless loop. This bug has now been addressed.
