It took Argbash one year to get another update, but 2.9.0 brings numerous bugfixes, noteworthy new features, and integration of the Docker Hub with the repository has been vastly improved.

  • Increased MacOS compatibility by removing terminator from the chmod invocation (#107).

2.8.1
Compare
Choose a tag to compare

This release fixes many issues, and it also doesn't enable the readlink -e functionality introduced in 2.8.0. So there is a slight breakage of backwards compatibility for those who use the standalone mode and who use symlinks.

Incompatible changes (minor):

  • The DEFINE_SCRIPT_DIR macro doesn't resolve symlinks as it started to do so in 2.8.0, use DEFINE_SCRIPT_DIR_GNU if you need the functionality.

New features (minor):

  • The help message now contains reference for one-of argument types (#76).

Bugfixes:

  • The environment variables help message has been fixed (#79).
  • The manpage generation works when long description is supplied (#78).
  • The DEFINE_SCRIPT_DIR macro doesn't use readlink -e any more (#74).
  • Completion generation works even when there are no options followed by value (#77).

  • Allow scripts generated by argbash-init with complete separation (-s -s) to be run from a symbolic link.

  • Introduced the ARG_VERSION_AUTO macro.

Bugfixes:

  • Double quotes in help messages are escaped (fixes #61).
  • Fixed regression that allowed duplicate short options (fixes #58).

  • Tests pass when there is no dash shell installed.
  • The double-dash handling when -- is the last argument has been improved.
