Now that I'm over my flu, I'm going to see if I can assist Jaykul in his work. Not getting rich result sets can be, and is, as much a blocker for them as it is for us.
Hopefully we can get Choco compat with vnext (vCurrent now?) in sooner that later.

Good to hear that you are feeling better! That would be great. I have been toying with the idea of creating a temporary ChocoService, to replace the current ChocolateyService to simply shell out to Process.Start and call exe directly, that would allow us to get the basic functionality working now, and then switch to using the DLL, and introducing new features in the develop branch. Thoughts?
by the way, how cool is this....

It's certainly worth a try. We do a lot of funny business that depends on out PowerShell interactions though. More power too you if you can do it :)

generate a complete set of release notes, based on the Releases configured on GitHub

I was having a quick look at it last night, and hope to do a bit more over the weekend. Not going to invest a whole lot in it, as it makes more sense to wait for the DLL implementation, but at least we woudl have "something" working with 0.9.9.x of Chocolatey now, while we wait on the DLL coming up to par with what is required
yeah, decided that I don't want to maintain the CHANGELOG.md anymore, but still want to show release notes in application. So basically keep the Releases section in GitHub the one source of truth and generate a CHANGELOG.md file from there, that can then be used in the application

Yup. We already do listing through OData, so we just need to update the other commands.

I agree! That's a good way to manage it. I think some places do it in reverse, but it works :)

yip, I have seen that as well, but throw OctoKit into the mix, and it makes creating and maintaining the releases in GitHub very simple, and we can derive the information for use elsewhere. Really happy with that flow.
