Share Article

This March, Inedo has made two major updates to ProGet, their free to use NuGet package repository. The recent changes include a major release, ProGet 2.0, and an entirely new toolset, ProGet Client Tools. Inedo is the development team behind both ProGet and BuildMaster: an out-of-the-box tool specifically designed to help organizations utilize DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and similar methodologies.

We've created a new approach to managing dependencies, one that would work well hand in hand with NuGet, or standing on its own two feet.

Inedo, creators of BuildMaster and ProGet, have made significant changes to ProGet, a free NuGet package repository. These new offerings consist of a major release, ProGet 2.0, as well as a new product ProGet Client Tools.

ProGet is a NuGet server that can function as a complement to NuGet, or as a standalone tool. ProGet offers its users different avenues for handling enterprise dependencies. It addresses this goal by adding features like; authentication, access controls, and auditing.

“With ProGet we weren't aiming at a replacement for NuGet,” explains Alex Papadimoulis, Founder and President of Inedo. “Instead, we've created a new approach to managing dependencies, one that would work well hand in hand with NuGet, or standing on its own two feet.”

The ProGet 2.0 release has made several notable changes:

  •     NuGet Extensions are now available, for easier configuration and additional metadata storage.
  •     Changes to the SDK now allow for differential disk space, here is an example.
  •     Package metadata is now indexed in the database, which means that large feeds are no longer an issue.

These are only the most prominent changes to ProGet, for more information you can refer to the release notes.

Inedo also took this opportunity to release a new toolset. The ProGet Client Tools are designed to allow enterprise users to get full functionality out of the types of workflows that are common to their environments. The idea for this toolset was derived directly from user demand.

“We kept seeing a very real need for this type of tool, “says Alex, “Users would repeatedly hit stumbling blocks when repository changes would occur from unknown or opaque sources. Just like ProGet, our Client Tools offer an alternative for enterprise users. Depending on your needs you can either run ProGet Client Tools alone, but they still mesh well with NuGet.”

ProGet Client Tools offer a greater customization and transparency when working within these systems in order to increase the overall functionality and flexibility of the software.

Both products are available to be licensed for free, or at cost with added features.
