This package contains implementations of commonly-used MSBuild tasks that ship with MSBuild itself.

You do not need to reference this package to use these tasks in a build--they are available in any MSBuild environment.

If you are writing a new task, you may wish to reference Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core and derive from Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Task or Microsoft.Build.Utilities.ToolTask.
