This release brings the coveted Package Builder UI to the Pro+ license (minus auto detection) and adds a tabbed interface that allows you to fill out the entire nuspec. Package Synchronizer now has choco sync to compliment the automatic synchronization. The sync command brings all unmanaged software in Programs and Features under Chocolatey management.

FEATURES

We've introduced some service management functions to the business edition. Install-ChocolateyWindowsService, Uninstall-ChocolateyWindowsService, Start-ChocolateyWindowsService, and Stop-ChocolateyWindowsService. Those will be documented soon enough. For now some example code should suffice.

$toolsDir   = "$(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"
$serviceExe = Join-Path $toolsDir 'service\chocolatey-agent.exe'

$packageArgs = @{
  Name                  = 'chocolatey-agent'
  DisplayName           = 'Chocolatey Agent'
  Description           = 'Chocolatey Agent is a backgound service for Chocolatey.'
  StartupType           = 'Automatic'
  ServiceExecutablePath = $serviceExe
}

#Username, Password, -DoNotStartService are also considered

Install-ChocolateyWindowsService @packageArgs

# The other three methods simply take the service name.
Start-ChocolateyWindowsService -Name 'chocolatey-agent'
Stop-ChocolateyWindowsService -Name 'chocolatey-agent'
Uninstall-ChocolateyWindowsService -Name 'chocolatey-agent'

Package Builder has some major improvements in this release, including a new UI! See https://chocolatey.org/blog/package-builder-announcements for details! While building some of the features for the enhancements for this release, we've made quite a few tweaks and fixes to Package Builder and we think you are going to like the results. Being able to generate packages from the installed software on a reference system is huge (choco new --from-programs-and-features)!

Pro users now have the ability to download packages (minus internalization). This is fantastic if you want to pull down a lot of packages quickly from a remote source. Or pull down packages and push them up to an internal source.
