Based on comments on the forum - https://our.umbraco.org/forum/ourumb-dev-forum/bugs/64394-Reference-to-Specific-Version-AutoMapper-causing-downstream-issues - I think that you've picked this up, but couldn't see an issue here so wanted to make sure. Or see if there's a solution!

But the issue is that with the beta of 7.3, Umbraco core has a NuGet dependency on Automapper 3.3.1 or above. This causes an issue with packages built against 3.0.0: "Could not load file or assembly 'AutoMapper, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies.". Archetype is one example.

I haven't been able to find a way to fix this with binding redirects, so looks like you would need to revert the dependency back to 3.0.0 as was the case for version 7.2.8 to resolve this without a breaking change?

Yup, we've reverted to 3.0.0 in 7.3.0 final.
