Support for Dependent Assembly plug-ins
Microsoft is introducing Dependent Assemblies (currently in preview), which will take over functions of ILMerge (which is deprecated) and can be used in Plugins to load dependent assemblies. More on the topic: https://docs.microsoft.com/pl-pl/power-apps/developer/data-platform/dependent-assembly-plugins
This is being worked on as part of the v8 release.
@Customer Support - do you have a roadmap for the v8 release or an ETA?
