Yesterday afternoon, we enabled a new feature for both the NuGet gallery and the Visual Studio client (for NuGet >= 2.7) which will display the list of license names for a package in addition to simply providing a link to the license text.
In our next deployment, which is scheduled for the week of August 26th, 2013, we have added the ability to edit package metadata at any point in time before or after publishing the package. This has been one of the frequent requests from package authors.
Twelve weeks ago, Microsoft’s Azure Applications Platform & Tools team welcomed three 2nd-year college students, Jaspreet Bagga, Jeremiah Jekich, and Melissa McNeill, and gave them an opportunity to contribute to NuGet.
Discovering NuGet packages can be a daunting process.
TL;DR The preview.nuget.org site is going away. Switch to staging.nuget.org by April 26th!
We have a version of the NuGet Gallery called “Preview” and it’s been hosted at preview.nuget.org since early in the Gallery’s lifetime. Until recently, our QA team used preview.nuget.org to do their testing,
The NuGet Gallery crew has gotten into a rhythm of publishing updates every 2 weeks. With the increased update frequency, we found that we needed to create a changelog to highlight new features. That changelog is now available directly from within our source repository on GitHub.
We have introduced a new feature on http://nuget.org where you can see download statistics for packages. With this initial drop, we hope to whet your appetite and collect your input on further statistics features; it’s a mere fraction of what we can imagine.
While each NuGet package’s nuspec metadata defines the package’s owner(s), the NuGet gallery at nuget.org ignores that piece of nuspec metadata. Instead, ownership of a package is defined by who publishes the package to the gallery. Sometimes this metadata needs to be managed beyond the initial package publishing too,
A little over a week ago, we asked for your help with an experimentt that we were conducting to see whether there was value in enabling CDN support for our packages blob storage container. Over 100 of you responded from all over the world,
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been investigating whether to turn on the content delivery network (CDN) feature of the Azure blob storage container for NuGet packages. In theory, this would make package downloads faster – especially if you’re located outside of the United States.
