A set of compile-time libraries (nothing to deploy) and a build task that enable you to export functions from managed code to native applications.
     That means, you can create plugins in a managed language like C# or F# for native applications that only have a C-Api (like Notepad++).
     The nuget package is all you need. Just mark your methods with [DllExport] and build.

     - You have to set your platform target to either x86, ia64 or x64. AnyCPU assemblies cannot export functions.
     - The export name defaults to the method name and the calling convention to stdcall. If that's all what you want, you can just use [DllExport] without parameters.
     - You cannot put your exports in generic types or export gegenric methods, but your parameters or the result can use generics.
     static void Test(YourStruct<int> data){}

- Placing [DllExport] on non-static methods will now yield an error.
     - Placing [DllExport] on methods in generic types (or types nested in generic types) will yield an error.
     - Errors regarding lib.exe will no longer break the build.
     - Added support for generic return types. Even the most esotheric corner cases (obfuscated types) should work.
     - Made the code that checks method names and class names much more resilient and faster.
     - Most messages are localizable now (and I translated them to German).
