Cake v0.21.0 released

Version 0.21.0 of Cake has been released.

So, let's be clear, this release will break things - but it is all intentional!

This release is mostly about bringing the .NET Core aliases up-to-date with .NET Core SDK 1.0.4, which is the latest RTM/stable version. The shift to using MSBuild and from project.json to csproj project system has resulted in many breaking changes and additions to the .NET CLI.

Regardless of intentional or unintentional breaking changes, the possibility of new releases breaking something is why we always recommend you pin the version of Cake you're running, thus avoiding any unplanned broken builds. You can read more about pinning Cake version here.

Huge thanks to Jonathan Kuleff, who has done a brilliant job and epic effort in methodically going through the .NET CLI and Cake aliases identifying what's been changed, removed or added! It's been great working with you through these pull-requests.

Towards the end of 2016, the Cake Team had an internal discussion about the newly created Cake Contrib Organisation. The topic of this conversation was, how could we distinguish between packages (mainly NuGet ones) that were part of the Core Cake system (for example, Cake, Cake.Core, Cake.NuGet, etc), and packages which have been created by our amazing Cake Community, in the form of addins, and modules.

Cake v0.20.0 released

Version 0.20.0 of Cake has been released.

This release hopefully contains no new features!

But nevertheless it's the result of a great team effort. With this release we've finally migrated from VS2015 and .NET Core preview bits and project.json to VS2017 / .NET Core SDK 1.0.4 and csproj. This release also contains a few documentation improvements.

It's been a little more work than expected to get everything to compile and test successfully cross platform using the new SDK, but now the yak if finally shaved and we have an release out!

Our goal is for there to be no breaking changes with this build, but there's certainly a risk of that as changing underlying SDK and build tooling is a substantial move of cheese.

This is why we always recommend you pin the version of Cake you're running to avoid any unplanned broken builds. You can read more about pinning Cake version here.
