Deprecated Features

Support for NeoVim versions below 0.2.0 is deprecated in this version of ALE. Users using older versions of NeoVim will see a warning they can turn off when NeoVim starts. Support for NeoVim versions below 0.2.0 will be removed in ALE v2.0.0, to be released during Spring or Summer 2018. NeoVim 0.2.0 supports closures, which will make development of ALE easier.

The following functions will now emit deprecation warnings, and will be removed in ALE 0.2.0.

  • ale#statusline#Status()
  • ALELint()
  • ALEGetStatusLine()
