Release Notes: https://fake.build/RELEASE_NOTES.html#5-0-0-2018-06-06

Please let us know how it works for you! This thread is more around experiences (like upgrading) and smaller things. Issues and problems should be tracked on GitHub.

So let me begin:
You can now use FAKE to get F# scripting basically anywhere including latest and greatest compiler upgrades, compilation caching and tooling support! For me this is a huge thing as introducing FAKE was always kind of a huge deal (lots of dependencies and files to introduce).

The other thing is the modules system, it now so easy to just pull in any NuGet package (when it supports netstandard) and use it in your build script.
