I'm developing a REST API using ASP.NET Core and want the version number to be automatically incremented. This used to be easily by the following pattern in the AssemblyInfo file: [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.6.*")].
I have read a couple of suggestions to use gulp or other third party tools to accomplish this, like the answer here
But do I really need a third party tool to get automatically increased version number? Is there no longer a built-in feature to support this? It feels like I'm missing something here.
