Today we released the latest version of the PowerApps CLI! In this update we took time to collect the top issues reported by our users and address them. We are also getting closer to our GA release and have reached an important milestone of crossing over into version 1.x! For our public preview users, this means updating your exiting project files (cdsproj, pcfproj) and package.json files as nuget and npm will not automatically update your projects from our 0.x versions to our 1.x versions. You can find the detailed upgrade steps in the tooling documentation.
If you have not yet updated your PowerApps CLI to the latest version, please take a minute to install the latest MSI by following these installation instructions.
Once you have the latest version of the CLI you can always refer to the tooling documentation to get started or to update your existing projects.

We hope you enjoy all September updates in the PowerApps CLI and are excited to hear what you think. If you have questions or other feedback, please let us know on the PowerApps component framework forum. We look forward to hearing from you!
As this is our first major version bump, I wanted to be sure and call attention to how to get fully upgraded to 1.x. Some changes for the v1 release were made that will cause issues if you have a mixture of 0.* and 1.* versions on your machine. First, be sure to read the article about updating existing controls and especially the section “Updating the project files.”
To verify that you have the updated versions:
Currently, these should all be 1.0.6.
Hope this helps.
