Note that with NuGet 2.7, we have removed support for Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone due to technical limitations related to the new automatic package restore. A separate download is available for that version of Visual Studio and it can be found on the NuGet 2.7 downloads page on CodePlex.

Visual Studio 2013

NuGet 2.7 is the version of NuGet that will be included in Visual Studio 2013, with the exception of minor updates such as refreshed localization. When those updates are completed, we will republish NuGet 2.7, but no new features will be added.

  1. New package restore doesn’t work on Mono when using SLN file
  2. New package restore doesn’t work with Wix projects
