Welcome to the albacore project.
albacore is a suite of Rake tasks to automate the process of building a .NET based system. It's like MSBuild or Nant... but without all the stabby-bracket xmlhell.
How To Use albacore
Check out the albacore Wiki for detailed instructions on how to use the built in tasks and their options.
If you are new to Ruby and Rake, head over to the getting started wiki page.

Notes About IronRuby
Due to an incompatibility with the Rubyzip gem, IronRuby does not support the ‘zip’ and ‘unzip’ tasks. If you need zip / unzip support, look into using a third party tool such as 7-zip or SharpZipLib.
