Latest .NET Entity Framework Drivers not published to

Prior to version 2.0 of IBM's .NET Core EF Driver they were all published to which is the proper place to publish all the nuget packages.

Starting with 2.0 it is only available from passport advantage.

This poses several issues for us:

1. We don't know when new releases are available, previously they would show up inside of Visual Studio as an updated nuget showing a updated nuget package was available.

2. Our continous integration / deployments will not work because during the nuget package restores during the build process it won't be able to fetch the proper nuget package from

Can you please post the latest versions of IBM.Data.DB2.Core and IBM.EntityFrameworkCore nuget packages to nuget to solve these issues?

    Nuget is the leading standard for deployment now. There is no reason IBM should not be using it for current and future releases.
