This release is the first stable release of Windows Package Manager 1.3.

This release represents our fourth Windows Package Manager 1.3 release candidate build for Windows 10 (1809+), and Windows 11.

This release addresses several bugs related to installing a portable package such as incorrectly displaying a file overwrite warning message, failing to create a symlink if developer mode is not enabled or not running in admin, and not preserving scope when upgrading.

Experimental features have been disabled in this release. We will follow this release with another Pre-release "developer" build at GitHub so users can continue with experimental features available.

Note: The Windows Package Manager Community Repository does not accept portable applications. They will not be accepted until after 1.3 is Generally Available and has been rolled out to the majority of Windows systems via the automatic upgrade from the Microsoft Store. Users may test with local manifests.
