Breaking changes in Cake Frosting

CakeHostBuilder has been removed. With Cake.Frosting 1.0 can be used directly to create the object.

Addin recommended Cake version set to 1.0

In preparation for the 1.0 release, we’ve now set the recommended version of Cake.Core for addins to target to 1.0.

The assembly 'Cake.DotNetTool.Module, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' is referencing an older version of Cake.Core (0.33.0).
