As of July 5th, 2018 we are going to change our NuGet nightly builds and package policy. Please read on to secure your previously integrated SciChart packages and set up future feeds correctly into your build system.
Why the change in Package Retention?
Over the years we have built up quite a library of tens of gigabytes of NuGet packages. Our host won’t allow us to increase the disk space any further without going onto a dedicated server plan, which would result in a NuGet feed URL change and disruption to our users. We want to keep it as less disruptive as possible, that is why we’re introducing a new package retention policy to tell you what builds will be kept and for how long.
- Important: From the 5th July 2018 onward, all nightly builds will be published to abtsoftware-bleeding-edge. See the this article to learn how to add this feed to your visual studio;
- Nightly builds will be kept for no longer than six months, or last 100 packages, whichever happens sooner;
- We encourage our users to use official release builds as we will be cleaning the feed from older builds.
- Official releases are now promoted from abtsoftware-bleeding-edge to abtsoftware, when the release is made. See the this article to learn how to add this feed to your Visual Studio;
- Official releases will be kept indefinitely.
Trimming older nightly builds
To preserve disk space we may start trimming older nightly builds in the v3 and v4 range, keeping official releases on the abtsoftware feed.
If you are using a nightly build we recommend using the latest (higher) official release as soon as possible. A list of official releases version numbers can be found at www.scichart.com/downloads in the right-hand column, please see below:

We are continuing to develop & support SciChart WPF and have some exciting new releases due soon. More to be announced in the near future!
