.NET users can now use Artifactory with full NuGet support
Just recently JFrog has released version 2.5 of Artifactory, the enterprise-grade Binary Repository that centralizes all aspects of managing software binaries and libraries. A major new feature in this release is support for the .NET NuGet packaging systembreak.
Managing .NET packages with ease
NuGet packages are now first class citizens in Artifactory, allowing you to point Visual Studio at Artifactory as a central point for all NuGet feeds. NuGet packages and can be proxied from the NuGet Gallery or any other remote feed and also be deployed and hosted using the Web UI, MSBuild or directly from your build server.
NuGet users can now take advantage of Artifactory’s proven enterprise features, like: powerful security with Active Directory integration; control over which packages can be used by developers; exposing different package views for different projects; sophisticated searches; powerful repository management; and build integration.
“We are excited to work with the .NET community and believe that Artifactory is the missing piece for robust, agile .NET library management, that can make the development process easier compared to existing alternatives.” said Baruch Sadogursky, Developers Advocate with JFrog.

NuGet is a free, open source developer focused package management system for the .NET platform intent on simplifying the process of incorporating third party libraries into a .NET application during development. There are a large number of useful 3rd party open source libraries out there for the .NET platform, but for those not familiar with the OSS ecosystem, it can be a pain to pull these libraries into a project. NuGet automates all these common tasks for a package as well as its dependencies. It removes nearly all of the challenges of incorporating a third party open source library into a project’s source tree.
