Deprecate relying on default
exit_on_failure?. In preparation to make Thor commands exit when there is a failure we are deprecating defining a command without defining what behavior is expected when there is a failure.
To fix the deprecation you need to define a class method called
falseif you want the current behavior or
trueif you want the new behavior.
Deprecate defining an option with the default value using a different type as defined in the option.
Allow options to be repeatable. See #674.
- Support old versions of
- Support new versions of ERB.
check_unknown_options!to not check the content that was not parsed, i.e. after a
--or after the first unknown with
check_default_type!to check if the default value of an option matches the defined type. It removes the warning on usage and gives the command authors the possibility to check for programming errors.
disable_required_check!to disable check for required options in some commands. It is a substitute of
disable_class_optionsthat was not working as intended.

0.11, released 2009-07-01
Added a rake compatibility layer. It allows you to use spec and rdoc tasks on Thor classes.
BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE: aliases are not generated automatically anymore since it may cause wrong behavior in the invocation system.
thor help now show information about any class/task. All those calls are possible:
thor help describe thor help describe:amazing
Or even with default namespaces:
thor help :spec
Thor::Runner now invokes the default task if none is supplied:
thor describe # invokes the default task, usually help
Thor::Runner now works with mappings:
thor describe -h
Added some documentation and code refactoring.
0.9.8, released 2008-10-20
- Fixed some tiny issues that were introduced lately.
0.9.7, released 2008-10-13
- Setting global method options on the initialize method works as expected: All other tasks will accept these global options in addition to their own.
- Added 'group' notion to Thor task sets (class Thor); by default all tasks are in the 'standard' group. Running 'thor -T' will only show the standard tasks - adding --all will show all tasks. You can also filter on a specific group using the --group option: thor -T --group advanced

- Don't write options for nil or false values. This allows, for example, turning color off when running specs.

- Only delete the old file on updating when the installation of the new one is a success
- Make it Ruby 1.8.5 compatible.
