XAF - Nuget packages (v18.2)

To help you better manage build processes for your XAF projects and employ CI/CD tools approved within your Enterprise (such as Azure Pipelines), DevExpress Nuget now includes packages based on XAF assemblies. 

As you may already know, we opted for both large metapackages (for instance, DevExpress.ExpressApp.Core.AllDevExpress.ExpressApp.Win.All, etc.) and small individual packages for each XAF module or assembly. For more information, please refer to this knowledge base article.


For testing purposes, we've successfully configured Nuget packages in an XAF demo and built it with Azure Pipelines:

Great stuff!

One Thing that would be cool, is the Modeleditor as a dotnet global Tool :) that way i wouldn't need my packagebuilder anymore!
