  • On v3, all CLI variables will be considered global variables (#336, #341)
  • Add support to .env like files (#324, #356).
  • Add label: to task so you can override the task name in the logs (#321, #337).
  • Refactor how variables work on version 3 (#311).
  • Disallow expansions on v3 since it has no effect.
  • Taskvars.yml is not automatically included anymore.
  • Taskfile_{{OS}}.yml is not automatically included anymore.
  • Allow interpolation on includes, so you can manually include a Taskfile based on operation system, for example.
  • Expose .TASK variable in templates with the task name (#252).
  • Implement short task syntax (#194, #240).
  • Added option to make included Taskfile run commands on its own directory (#260, #144)
  • Taskfiles in version 1 are not supported anymore (#237).
  • Added global method: option. With this option, you can set a default method to all tasks in a Taskfile (#246).
  • Changed default method from timestamp to checksum (#246).
  • New magic variables are now available when using status:: .TIMESTAMP which contains the greatest modification date from the files listed in sources:, and .CHECKSUM, which contains a checksum of all files listed in status:. This is useful for manual checking when using external, or even remote, artifacts when using status: (#216).
  • We're now using slim-sprig instead of sprig, which allowed a file size reduction of about 22% (#219).
  • We now use some colors on Task output to better distinguish message types - commands are green, errors are red, etc (#207).
