Windows Package Manager 1.5.1081-preview


Recommended Posts

This is the third development build after the Windows Package Manager 1.4 build for Windows 10 (1809+) and Windows 11. This build will be released to Windows Insider Dev builds and Windows Package Manager Insiders.

Experimental features are enabled in this release. The experimental feature for enabling Windows Features is now supported and included in this release. You can now specify the Windows feature name (i.e. netfx3) you want to enable in the WindowsFeature field in your installer manifest.

Run winget features to see which experimental features are enabled or disabled.
Add the following to your settings (winget settings) file to enable the experimental features including package pinning:

    "experimentalFeatures": {
	  "pinning": true,
	  "dependencies": true,
	  "directMSI": true,
	  "uninstallPreviousArgument": true,
	  "windowsFeature": true,

This release makes improvements to the overall user experience of WinGet with improvements to package correlation, COM APIs, logging/output, and Portable installation. This release also includes an early preview of our Microsoft.WinGet.Client PowerShell module. Information about getting started and usage can be found here.
