Just upgraded JSLintNet.MSBuild to NuGet 2.8 and marked it as a development only dependency using the new <developmentDependency> flag (see

Unfortunately I cannot upload it to I assume this is because it's still using the NuGet 2.7 nuspec parser, which doesn't recognize the new <developmentDependency> element.

It's throwing the following error after attempting to upload:
Failed to read the package file.

P.S. JSLint.NET for MSBuild is a code quality tool not a library dependency, so the "development only" flag is important.

Edit: Attached screen from NuGet Package Explorer 3.8.1 to show that the package is actually valid.


Oh dear!
