OneGet is a Chocolatey-like package manager from Microsoft.  I’m not sure where that leaves Chocolatey down the road, but still, an official MS
package manager is long overdue. NuGet 3.0 sounds like it'll be a big improvement!  It’s ambitious, but it’ll address some of the fundamental problems that have existed since 1.0.  Check out this neat explanation of X-Men: Days of Future Past using Git.  Troy Hunt's explanation of the latest SSL vulnerability is well-written and worth a quick read.
