What's new in FAKE 5?

FAKE 5 was built on several key design principles ...


Only pay for what you need


Integrate your own modules


Get started as fast as possible

All these principles lead to a new level of usability in FAKE 5. This will open up a lot of opportunities for FAKE to go where it has never gone before.


There is a clear migration path to FAKE 5

No, your current build scripts will not break, but the development of new features for FAKE 4 and the old way of using FAKE are no longer supported.


FAKE 5 now supports a lot more bootstrapping options

Every project has different needs. Therefore, FAKE 5 supports several ways to bootstrap the build process. From an assumed installation - for example via chocolatey - to automatically updated bootstrapping scripts.
