I was just looking to see what the plans are for supporting NuGet v3 and
project.json in XS?
project.json can be used instead of
packages.config for any project type and it works great in VS.
Among it's main advantages are:
- references are not stored in csproj file. Decreases merging pain when updating references
- transitive refs mean not having to list every package in the chain. This has tremendous improvements for Xamarin.Forms projects, especially on Android, where large numbers of packages are pulled in.
