Visual Studio Templates Support Multiple Preinstalled Package Repositories

If you produce Visual Studio templates, you can use NuGet to preinstall packages as part of the template. Until now, this feature had a limitation that all of the packages needed to come from the same source. With NuGet 2.2.1 though, you can have packages installed from multiple repositories (within the template, a VSIX, or a folder on disk defined in the registry).

The main scenario for this feature is custom ASP.NET project templates. The built-in ASP.NET templates use preinstalled packages, pulling packages from local disk. You can now create a custom ASP.NET project template that uses the existing packages installed by ASP.NET but add extra NuGet packages into your template.

Bug Fixes

NuGet 2.2.1 includes a few targeted bug fixes. For a list of work items fixed in NuGet 2.2.1, please view the NuGet Issue Tracker for this release.

Known Issues

If you are extending ASP.NET project templates, all preinstalled package repositories must use the same value for the isPreunzipped attribute.
