v3.7.2

Normalize, test, and make $BuildRoot constant after loading tasks (#95).

v3.7.1

Invoke-Builds (parallel builds)

  • Add FailHard, it tells to abort builds if any build fails.
  • Redesign the script without using runspace pools.
  • Avoid some duplicated info in output.

v3.7.0

Package the module files together with scripts. As a result, the script package may be used as the module, too. This change does not affect the module package.

Retire Get-BuildVersion. Use (Get-Module InvokeBuild).Version instead. In theory, this change is breaking but it seems the function was not used. The standard module version is used from now on.

v3.6.5

Fix resuming of persistent builds after failures in task -If (#90).

v3.6.4

Support version suffix x86 in use and Resolve-MSBuild (#85).

  • Fix potential PS v6-beta.3 issues in ib.cmd.

v3.6.0

Support script block as File (#78).

v3.5.3

Improved product selection logic in Resolve-MSBuild (#77). If you use the module VSSetup make sure it is not too old. It should support -Product *.

v3.5.2

  • Avoid some property limitations (#75).
  • Use & in exec, it looks safer.
  • Tweak help.

v3.5.1

  • Remove redundant information from safe errors.
  • Remove retired "Parameters" from reserved.

v3.5.0

  • New block Set-BuildHeader for writing custom task headers.
  • New function Get-BuildSynopsis, e.g. for Set-BuildHeader.

See repo/Tasks/Header for examples of Set-BuildHeader and Get-BuildSynopsis.

v3.4.0

New command requires, the alias of Test-BuildAsset (#73).

v3.3.11

Rework engine variables to reduce noise on debugging (#72).

v3.3.10

  • Add exported aliases to .psd1, work around #71.
  • Fix leaked variable on dot-sourcing Invoke-Build.

Fix incremental tasks on Mono (#69).

Improve errors on tasks check failures (#67).

v3.3.6

Retire obsolete events defined as functions, see #66.

v3.3.5

Use less cryptic names for internal functions (#63).

v3.3.4

Adjust property behaviour to PowerShell and MSBuild (#60):

  • get the session variable value if it is not $null or ''
  • get the environment value if it is not $null or ''
  • get the specified default if it is not $null
  • throw an error

v3.3.3

Resolve-MSBuild supports the BuildTools installation (#57).

v3.3.2

Improve info on typical mistakes:

  • missing comma in job lists
  • unexpected build output
  • dangling script blocks

v3.3.1

Improve errors on invalid script syntax (#56).

v3.3.0

New Resolve-MSBuild.ps1 for finding MSBuild 2.0-15.0, specified or the latest. It may be used directly. Build scripts use it via the alias Resolve-MSBuild. NuGet and PSGallery packages include this script.

The old way use <version> MSBuild is supported and works with all versions. But the new script is used internally, Invoke-Build.ps1 alone is not enough.

v3.2.4

Fix #54, exec should use $global:LastExitCode.

v3.2.3

Use exit /B in ib.cmd (#52).

v3.2.2

  • Incremental tasks print some more info (#49)
  • Outputs block receives piped Inputs (#50)

v3.2.1

Module help tweaks.

v3.2.0

use: The conventional path VisualStudio\<version> is resolved via the registry to the Visual Studio tools directory (devenv, mstest, tf).

v3.1.0

Event blocks instead of functions, see #36.

Use exit 0 on success (#34).

v3.0.1

Invoke-Build is cross-platform with PowerShell v6.0.0-alpha.
