Without escaping these, there's no way to set a multiline property value such as PackageReleaseNotes for the MSBuild Pack target.

I saw that you're doing URL encoding when semicolons are present and indeed, the same trick works for CRLF:

var releaseNotes = ParseReleaseNotes("./").Notes;

MSBuild(BuildParameters.ProjectDir, new MSBuildSettings()
    .WithProperty("PackageReleaseNotes", string.Join("%0D%0A", releaseNotes)));

However, I shouldn't be URL-encoding myself- what if one of the lines contains a semicolon? Then it probably gets URL-encoded again by Cake, breaking the manually-URL-encoded newlines.

We should be able to do .WithProperty("PackageReleaseNotes", string.Join("\r\n", releaseNotes)) and have automatic URL-encoding just like we get for semicolons.
