Current Stable Release

[!WARNING] The current stable release is not compatible with MonoGame

Current Prerelease

[!NOTE] Prerelease is based on current develop branch snapshot. There it is not considered stable and may contain bugs

Using the Content Pipeline Extensions

To use the content pipeline extensions, you will need to edit your .mgcb file to reference the .dll. To see an example of how to do this with NuGet see the samples at The important pieces are the NuGet.config file and the .mgcb file.
