NuGet 1.8 Released

May 25, 2012 by The NuGet Team

We’re happy to announce that we released NuGet 1.8 on 5/23/2012. This release includes support for localized satellite assemblies, nuget.exe performance improvements, and 34 bug fixes. Details are in the NuGet 1.8 Release Notes.

Known issue on Windows XP

We would like to call out that shortly after NuGet 1.8 was released, we learned that a cryptography change in 1.8 broke users on Windows XP. Do not install NuGet 1.8 onto a Windows XP machine; if you have already installed NuGet 1.8, you can uninstall it and reinstall NuGet 1.7 using this download link.

We are working on a NuGet 1.8.1 release to address the regression. There is a CodePlex discussion thread for this issue, which resulted in a work item to fix the regression.

We want to hear your feedback!

We want NuGet to meet the evolving needs of our community. If you have comments or questions about this post, or want to discuss anything NuGet, open an issue on GitHub or mention @nuget in your tweets.
