[Optional] Using Prerelease Versions

If you're interested in helping test the Quantum Development Kit libraries, or if you want to try out new features before they are released, you can add the Quantum Development Kit prerelease feed to your .NET Core SDK configuration. Packages on the prerelease feed are marked with

in their version number, so that projects built using released versions of Quantum Development Kit libraries will not be affected. Note that the prerelease feed is used automatically when building libraries in this repository.

To use the prerelease feed, edit your

file to include the prerelease feed URL ( Quantum (public)/_packaging/alpha/nuget/v3/index.json
) as a package source. The location of this file varies depending on your operating system:

| OS | NuGet config file location | |----|----------------------------| | Windows |

| | macOS / Linux |

Note that this file may not already exist, depending on your configuration.

For example, the following

file includes both the main NuGet package feed, and the Quantum Development Kit prerelease feed:
