Release Notes

Version 0.8.0 of Cake has been released.

In this release we've added support for making the #tool and #addin directives independent from a specific package manager, as well as adding support for fetching specific and prerelease versions of NuGet packages.

To make this possible we've introduced a URI package format that will allow us to expand the package managment experience in the future. The old syntax for referencing packages is still supported, but will be limited to NuGet only.

In addition to the changes to the addin and tool directive, we also added functionality to support GitLink and XmlPeek aliases. See the linked issues below for more information on these features.

Please let us know if you run into any issues with this latest release.
