"Also, as Fable 1.0 relies on the new F# project format, we may wait until it is supported in Visual Studio 2017 -- currently the new .fsproj is only supported in Ionide -- but hopefully that will take only a few weeks," said Alfonso Garcia-Cano, Fable's lead developer.
The beta release also features an improved approach to project files. Developers will see a list of files, references, and CLI tools that can be easily edited without fear of breaking anything in a build, according to Garcia-Cano. The .Net Core SDK accepts references for CLI tools, and with a project file running "dotnet restore," developers can run Fable commands, prefixed with "dotnet fable."
