Service messages for MyGetWe’ve just deployed support for service messages in MyGet Build Services. With them, you can interact with our build agent by simply writing a message to the build output. This makes it easy to work with them from any build framework used, be it a simple batch file, PSAKE, MSBuild or others.

But what can you do with them? Why are they useful? There are a couple of situations that come to mind:

A service message looks like this: ##myget[buildNumber '1.0.0-beta1']. We also support a subset of TeamCity service messages. This makes your builds more portable between build systems and gives you more control of the build process. More information is available from our documentation.

Happy building, and happy packaging!
