Important information

This repository and tool is deprecated and I don't advice you to use it. Instead try devist which is a fork of this tool and creates a much reusable changelog. Spread the news, Devist is also open source and written in Ruby, available here.

If you really want to use Vicilog, everything is left at stable version. Just follow the documentation.


Vicilog is a small tool that recreate a release notes built on Github idea. It offers a really easy-to-use command-line interface, and based on your input Vicilog can be used as professional realase system (or that is what Vicilog is heading to). The best news? It is open-source based on GNU General Public License V2.0.
