We want to continue our discussion of the recent changes made to the NuGet experience with the v3 releases, and in this second blog post of the series we are going to focus on the user interface updates that were made for Visual Studio 2015.
Today we are releasing nuget.exe 3.2.1-RC and NuGet 2.9-RC. A number of issues were identified in both versions that prevented interoperability on Linux and OSX operating systems. We also made some fixes to 3.2 in order to reduce network utilization.
Below are the top highlights of these releases
Now skipping interpreting nuspec documents that are not well formed
Corrected an issue that prevented the NuGet extension from loading properly in Visual Studio 2013 Express
Improved handling the /r/n characters during network communication from a non-Windows operating system
The complete 2.9 issue list is available in GitHub
Corrected the casing of the NuGet.Config file being read.
Since Visual Studio 2015 was released in July, developers have started using a new version of NuGet, NuGet 3 We decided to introduce a number of significant changes based on feedback from the community. With any major version change, some things break… and usually for a good reason.
The NuGet community is awesome; involved and eager to build software to make it easy for use in bigger projects that the components and libraries that they themselves are building. Every now and again, community members can get a little too eager.
