Some additional info:
I reference NuGetPackageExplorer.Types v3.0.0 and use the latest version of NuGet Package Explorer, which is v3.6.0.3.

Looking at the sources here for the types, I see a different implementation of IPackageMetadata.
Is it possible that there's currently no NuGetPackageExplorer.Types package compatible with the latest version?

I've just uploaded v4.0 of the package. Please try it and let me know. Note that it now requires .NET 4.5 project.

Already trying :)

Q: plugin project needs to target net45, but should still reside in lib\net40 folder?

It fixed this issue, so I guess you can close it.

Hmm... Is it possible the DependencySets property is empty when passing in the IPackage to the IPackageCommand.Execute method?

Tested with EF package (which has dependencies), which had an empty DependencySets property value.

Do you still have issue with this? If yes, can you share a repro step the plugin?

Nope, you can close the issue. Thx!
