The NuGet Gallery was unavailable on March 9th from approximately midnight until 7:52 A.M., nearly eight hours. During this time all HTTP requests to the gallery website failed. In addition to affecting website users, the outage affected all NuGet client programs (such as the Visual Studio extension and nuget.exe) and other software that relies on the NuGet Gallery’s feed and API.
For the last few months, the NuGet team has been considering starting a proper, official blog. This is that blog.
How do we plan to use this blog? Here are a few ways we know we’ll use it (and I’m sure we’ll think of others as we go along):
Announcing new releases
Announcing upcoming breaking or very impactful changes
Pointing out particuarly important discussions on our CodePlex or GitHub sites
Feel free to leave us a comment,
