Exceptional tool that does what it's supposed to do.

This is an excellent indepensible tool. I am ashamed to see all these low ratings because people don't understand what nuget.exe is. User ignorance != bad product.

This tool is so helpful in validation of your package creation scripts instead of having to muck around with a 7zip and cracking open the meta data files manually.

Really great tool to simplify working with NuGet packages. MUCH easier than mucking around in XML!

Very useful, but too limited at this point. No way to open from custom feed, can't add folder - have to create each folder and then add files, no easy way to build latest from source code etc.

I don't see a way to specify a non-default Feed in NuGet Package Explorer.

Very good first release. I really missed such a feature, I was always renaming the packages to .zip and inspected them manually. With this version, you can even edit the packages. Next step is to drag/drop packages via a UI designer :)

The latest version needs .Net Framework 4.5. Can not run on Windows XP. :(
