Hi all, A quick update regarding the new release of the Fantomas project. There is a new and shiny global .NET Core cli tool. Install: dotnet tool install -g fantomas-tool The executable will be added to your path. Another new feature is the —preserveEOL option. This will respect additional newlines after formatting.

This could lead to more people being involved in the project. Many thanks…
