New in Nexus Repository 3.25: How Do I Switch to NuGet V3?

We are excited to announce the official release of Nexus Repository 3.25. Delivering on much anticipation from the Nexus community, this release completes full support for NuGet V3 repositories, including new NuGet V3 Group repositories, and gives both Nexus Repository Pro and OSS users access to the up-to-date V3 API. Nexus Repository and Visual Studio users can now create Proxy, Hosted, and Group NuGet V3 repositories with faster performance. This is all explained with how to get started in our NuGet V3 help documentation!

Nexus Repository offers robust, universal binary repository management for .NET development teams. In addition to being able to proxy and locally cache NuGet V3 packages from external remote repositories – most popular being NuGet Gallery via NuGet.org – Nexus users can now create NuGet V3 Group repositories. These group repositories combine hosted and proxy repositories for unified repository access from a single URL, allowing development teams to easily work with all of their NuGet components in one place. What are the benefits of NuGet V3 over V2? Why should Nexus customers and users upgrade to Nexus Repository 3.25 and take advantage of this new extended format support? Let’s explore both of these in the following material.

NuGet V3 Performance Improvements

Faster development, more frequent release cycles, and efficient reuse of components across teams have been important outcomes of using package managers and binary repositories when solving the challenge of managing open source and third-party libraries into an application during development. As production scales, software supply chains become more complex and any delay in time across each phase of the SDLC creates friction across an organization.

Nexus product team testing for performance of NuGet V3 over V2 shows 25-50% faster build times and ~50% reduction in NXRM memory usage.
