Excel-DNA version 1.0

A release candidate for Excel-DNA version 1.0 is now available on NuGet and as a direct download from GitHub. The easiest way to test is to install the pre-release NuGet package (package version 1.0.0-RC1):

Install-Package -Pre ExcelDna.AddIn
I hope to make a final release of version 1.0 in early April, soon after the release of Visual Studio 2019.
The Excel-DNA 1.0.x series (this version with minor fixes) will be final version to support older .NET (< 4.0) and Excel (< 2007) releases.
Version 1.0 is essentially the same as the long-overdue version 0.35. The update includes a number of bug fixes as well as improvements to the build-time Visual Studio integration:

  • Improve build tasks – more reliable clean-up and debugger detection
  • Improve RTD and async QueueAsMacro reliability
  • Improve install process of ExcelDna.AddIn NuGet package (now requires NuGet 2.5) (thanks to @caioproiete)
  • Change how ExcelDnaUtil.Application works in Protected View – try harder but don’t cache
  • Call UnhandledExceptionHandler for macros (ExcelCommands) too
  • Add XML schema for .dna file (thanks to @caioproiete)
  • Add option to pack .pdb files (thanks to @lanfeust69)
  • Fix exception handling from native async functions (thanks to @ittegrat)
