What’s Next

Along with improving the overall quality and performance of the product, the team is cleaning up any remaining issues from the cross-platform support in conjunction with the .NET Command-Line-Interface release. There are new features we want to implement around project.json capabilities, and improvements to service that enable a smoother publication process for package authors. Stay tuned for a more detailed update of our roadmap in the next month or so.
