Plan for NuGet in 2023 #12407
Today we are excited to share with you the plan for NuGet and NuGet.org. This issue contains summary of the plan for the year and acts as a place for you to leave feedback.
This plan is a collection of input from many stakeholders and outlines where we intend to invest our time in NuGet and NuGet.org.
NuGet has a major release following NuGet 6.4 and is currently scheduled for release in November 2023 at the same time as .NET 8.
NuGet will align with the .NET support policy and will therefore be a long-term support (LTS) release.
NuGet.org does not currently follow any specific schedule and releases features & bug fixes regularly throughout the year.
NuGet may contain a small number of breaking changes as we continue to evolve NuGet with the .NET platform. Our goal is to minimize breaking changes as much as possible to keep you productive when upgrading. You'll be able to find them at the .NET 8 Breaking Changes.
The large investments in NuGet are the following themes:
Highly Requested Features
As always, a major input into our planning process comes from votes (👍) for features on GitHub.
These features are areas we are actively engaged in with regards to designing, implementing, and polishing the respective experiences for.
Season of Giving
.NET Platforms and Ecosystem
Much of the work planned for NuGet involves improving the package management experience for .NET across different platforms and ecosystem. This involves work in NuGet to ensure a great experience across .NET technologies.
Migrating to .NET
NuGet has always supported many scenarios for package management. In our continued efforts to help you migrate to the latest version of .NET, we will be working on improvements to the Upgrade Assistant and core package management experiences to help you migrate your project to use the latest version of NuGet.
With each new release of NuGet & Visual Studio comes a plethora of performance improvements when restoring NuGet packages, managing project dependencies, and browsing for the next great package to include in your solution. We will continue to invest time to improve your experiences every .NET & Visual Studio release.
Your feedback is important to us. The best way to indicate the importance of an issue is to vote (👍) for that issue on GitHub and Visual Studio Developer Community. We use this data to help us with our regular planning so we can work on the things that matter most to you.
Please comment on this issue if you believe we are missing something that is critical for NuGet, or are focusing on the wrong areas. Give us a little bit of context as to why you believe so and feel free to upvote each other's comments to help us make changes to our future plans.
Huge thanks to @ajcvickers and the Entity Framework Core team for a wonderful format and forum to discuss product plans in OSS. 🎉

@smarts I think that #12539 is a better solution than #6437, at least for CI scenarios. It should also be much easier to implement. Unfortunately I have too many other higher priority things to have worked on it myself yet, but I think it might be simple enough for someone else to contribute, if someone wants to try before I, or someone else in the team, finds time to do it ourselves.
