At a high level this release brings the following

Wix based installers
SqlServer2008/12/14: Database.cs: New TaskAction="Attach", TaskAction="Detach"
Microsoft Dynamics Crm deployment tasks
IIS7\IIS7AppPool.cs Add support for LoadUserProfile. Thanks matroberts
IIS7\IIS7Website.cs: add credentials for authentication (thanks starshayayord)
Computer\ActiveDirectory.cs: Added Option to set First name and last name of domain users.
Added NuGet Packager to the MSBE
Added option to set windows authentication providers for IIS7 websites. Ended up setting a different task action rather than setting it as part of create since, the providers can only be set in Windows Server once the websites are created.

Subversion\Svn.cs: Fix Commit message issue
TFS.Proj: Fix assembly reference
SqlServer\SqlCmdWrapper.cs: Fix for InvalidOperationException
IIS7\IIS7Website.cs: Fix GetInfo to return the correct ApplicationPool name.
IIS7\IIS7Website.cs: LogError rather than warning if site does not exist for SetWindowsAuthenticationProviders, AddMimeType, AddResponseHeaders.
Framework\ILMerge.cs: Handle spaces in various properties
Framework\Parallel.cs: Clarify case sensistivity of MultiLogVerbosity
Framework\TFSSource, TFSSourceAdmin.cs: Default to 2013
FileSystem\File.cs: Add AvoidRegex and MatchWholeLine to address perf issue
AssemblyInfo\AssemblyInfoWrapper.cs: Fix to handle spaces in attribute declarations. Thanks ewilde
