MSIX Hero 0.8.3

A minor update to MSIX Hero has been released. This newest version 0.8.3 contains three changes to the handling of YAML files for winget:

  • When saving a manifest, an extra empty line is now appended at the end of the file
  • The manifest version is NOT added automatically. In previous version, 0.1.0 was used as a default (with an option to edit it). Although the field is a part of the standard definition, it seems that for a time being it may cause false positives and warnings in automated Azure Pipelines after making a pull request. In this build, some adjustments have been made to make sure that the manifest version is not editable and won’t be inserted, unless the YAML file being opened has it defined. Only in this case, the manifest version is visible and editable, in any other case the field won’t be even displayed. Note that this is a temporary solution, and may be changed in the future if validation of pull requests changes
  • It is now possible to open a YAML manifest by passing its full path as the argument to msixhero.exe. Note: previously this functionality was only limited to .appinstaller, .msix and .appx files.


The app will be updated automatically in a few hours if you installed it from app installer file. New users can download MSIX Hero from the Download page.
