### Migration steps

- Update `cake.tool` to `3.0` in _.config/dotnet-tools.json_. You can also run `dotnet tool update cake.tool`
- Update the PleOps.Cake version to 0.8.0 from `build.cake`
- If using VS Code Remote Containers, pull and rebuild the container
- Note that this version upgrades some third-party dependencies that use native libraries. They may no longer run in _older_ versions of Linux OS that use libc &lt; 2.33 like Ubuntu Focal or Debian 11.
