Release Notes

2.1.0:
New features:
- Attributes. Simplify command line argument definitions by adding attributes to a class that represents options and arguments.
   - Options defined as [Option] or [Argument], [Subcommand].
   - Command parsing options can be defined with [Command] and [Subcmomand].
   - Special options include [HelpOption] and [VersionOption].
   - Validation. You can use [Required] and any other ValidationAttribute to validate input on options and arguments.
- Async from end to end. Using C# 7.1 and attribute binding, your console app can be async from top to bottom.
- Required options and arguments. Added CommandOption.IsRequired() and CommandArgument.IsRequired().

New API
- Prompt.GetYesNo, Prompt.GetPassword, and more. Added API for interactively getting responses on the console.
- Added OptionAttribute, ArgumentAttribute, CommandAttribute, SubcommandAttribute, HelpOptionAttribute, and VersionOptionAttribute.
- CommandLineApplication.Execute<TApp>() - executes an app where TApp uses attributes to define its options
- CommandLineApplication.ExecuteAsync<TApp>() - sample thing, but async.
- CommandLineApplication.ResponseFileHandling - the parser can treat arguments that begin with '@' as response files.
  Response files contain arguments that will be treated as if they were passed on command line.

Minor bug fixes:
- Add return types to .VerboseOption() and ensure .HasValue() is true when HelpOption or VerboseOption are matched
- Fix a NullReferenceException in some edge cases when parsing args
- Fix bug where DotNetExe.FullPath might return the wrong location of the dotnet.exe file
