Create preview NuGet version using FAKE and Mercurial branch names
Create preview versions of NuGet packages is a very useful thing when multiple projects depends on it.
If your are using FAKE to script your builds, you can increment automatically your NuGets versions. see
I recently modified a build script to automate alpha or beta NuGet versionning with a small module:
So, when the branch name is like “alpha”, “beta”, “alpha1”, “beta10”, etc … I can concat it with the next NuGet version number.
