Summary: What's New in 4.3.1
- Security Fix: Permissions on files created inside ~/.nuget are too open #7673 CVE-2019-0757

NuGet restore may treat disabled package sources as enabled in some cases
The following restore command-line techniques treat disabled packages sources as enabled. NuGet#5704
dotnet restore(either with dotnet.exe that ships with VS, or the one that comes with NetCore SDK 2.0.0)
- Use Visual Studio (2017 15.3 or later) or NuGet.exe (v4.3.0 or later)
- Delete your disabled source and continue to use msbuild or dotnet.exe.
- For your solution, you could use "Clear" in NuGet.config and then define the sources necessary for that solution.
While using Package Manager Console, 'Enter' key may not work
Occasionally, the enter key does not work in the Package Manager Console. If you see this, please check out the progress on the fix, and provide any additional helpful information about your repro steps. NuGet#4204 NuGet#4570
Restart Visual Studio and open the PMC before opening the solution. Alternatively, try deleting the
project.lock.json and restoring again.
You are unable to view, add, or update DotNetCLITools, using Nuget Package Manager
NuGet Package Manager does not display and does not allow add/update of DotNetCLITools. NuGet#4256
DotNetCLIToolReferences must be manually edited in your project file.
Retargeting target framework version may lead to incomplete Intellisense
Retargeting target framework version may lead to incomplete Intellisense, in Visual Studio. This happens when you are using PackageReferences as the package manager format. NuGet#4216
Do a manual restore.
