Install from packages.config with getLatest

Apr 17, 2011 at 12:55 PM


I have a patch that allows the "install from packages.config" to get the latest version of packages, rather than the versions specified in the packages.config; I use it for testing via a nightly build that attempts to build a project using the latest of all dependencies, as a precursor to updating the "real" build.  It's fairly simplistic, insofar as it just attempts to install the packages in the list and their dependencies, without checking whether they are needed any more, but as it's just a test that's okay

Are you interested in a pull request?

Also, any thoughts as to the name of the parameter?  I've just called the option "TryNewestVersions" at the moment.
