What's new in FAKE 5?

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

Modularization

Only pay for what you need

Extensibility

Integrate your own modules

Quickstart

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.

Migration

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.

Bootstrapping

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.
