.NET Core

You can use the Cake.CoreCLR NuGet package to run cross-platform on Windows, Mac or Linux using .NET Core.

.NET Framework 4.6.1

The Cake NuGet package can be used on Windows to run using the full .NET Framework 4.6.1.

Alternatively, you can also use Mono to run on Mac or Linux. The official recommended version of Mono is 4.4.2. Older versions might work but are not supported.

NOTE: It is suggested to use .NET Framework 4.7.2 or newer to run build scripts which are using addins targetting .NET Standard 2.0 only.
