It's been an exciting first few months for Twill, and along the way, we've been listening to your feedback. Today, we're excited to release Twill 1.2 with easier setup, improved documentation, and several improvements. We also happily welcomed our first external contribution from @yanhao-li and a lot of research on extensibility from @IllyaMoskvin!

Breaking changes have been kept to a minimum and we've provided configuration variables for backward compatibility.

Reminder: Twill's versioning scheme maintains the following convention: paradigm.major.minor, exactly like Laravel. Fun fact: this is called Romantic Versioning! When referencing Twill from your application, you should always use a version constraint such as 1.2.*, since major releases of Twill do include breaking changes.
