The NuGet tools are available through Tools->Extensions and Updates->Update tab in Visual Studio 2015 as well as from our GitHub repository.

Its been a long journey to this date. We’ve investigated and tested and released a number of interim builds for developers and package owners to test with the latest Visual Studio bits. The NuGet team is happy to hear all of your feedback about our add-in for Visual Studio and would like to announce the availability of the NuGet 3.0 client with Visual Studio 2015.
In the last few weeks we saw a significant change in the NuGet ecosystem with the renaming of the K utilities and framework monikers to DNX. To support that change and provide backwards compatibility for existing versions of Visual Studio, we are publishing an update to NuGet extensions for Visual Studio 2010,
That was a quick turn-around… we issued our 3.0 beta just a few days ago and our community of developers and supporters quickly found a number of issues with it. Thank you to the early reporters on Twitter and on this blog for helping us to identify those issues.
Its time for the 3.0 beta release for NuGet, and this time we have some much sought-after enhancements in the works for you. You can get access to the update NuGet binaries on Codeplex and through the Visual Studio extension manager.
You’ve probably seen the cool announcements from Microsoft about the new Community Edition of Visual Studio and the upcoming Visual Studio 2015 release in the new year. We at the NuGet team have been ramping up our tools to support the new Visual Studio with a better visual experience and a better command-line experience.
