Nimble changelog

0.8.2 - 08/01/2017

This is a small bug fix release which resolves problems with the installation of Aporia (and likely other Nimble packages).

0.8.0 - 05/01/2017

This is a large release containing multiple new features and many bug fixes.

  • Implemented a completely new output system.
    • Supports different message types and priorities. Each is differently encoded using a color and a brightness.
    • The amount of messages shown can be changed by using the new --verbose and --debug flags, by default only high priority messages are shown.
    • Duplicate warnings are filtered out to prevent too much noise.
  • Package namespaces are now validated. You will see a warning whenever an incorrectly namespaced package is read by Nimble, this can occur either during installation or when the installed package database is being loaded. The namespacing rules are described in Nimble's readme. Consider these warnings to be unstable, if you see something that you think is incorrect please report it.
  • Special version dependencies are now installed into a directory with that special version in its name. For example, compiler@#head will be installed into ~/.nimble/pkgs/compiler-#head. This reduces the amount of redundant installs. See #88 for more information.
  • External dependencies can now be specified in .nimble files. Nimble doesn't install these, but does instruct the user on how they can be installed. More information about this feature can be found in the readme.
  • Nimble now supports package aliases in the packages.json files.
  • Fixed regression that caused transitive dependencies to not be installed.
  • Fixed problem with install command when a src directory is present in the current directory.
  • Improved quoting of process execution arguments.
  • Many improvements to custom --nimbleDir handling. All commands should now support it correctly.
  • Running nimble -v will no longer read the Nimble config before displaying the version.
  • Refresh command now supports a package list name as argument.
  • Fixes issues with symlinks not being removed correctly.
  • Changed the way the dump command locates the .nimble file.

0.7.10 - 09/10/2016

This release includes multiple bug fixes.

  • Reverted patch that breaks binary stubs in Git Bash on Windows.
  • The nimscriptapi.nim file is now statically compiled into the binary. This should fix the "could not find nimscriptapi.nim" errors. The file can still be overriden by placing a file named nimscriptapi.nim inside a nimblepkg directory that is placed alongside the Nimble binary, or by a nimscriptapi.nim file inside ~/.nimble/pkgs/nimble-ver/nimblepkg/. For more information see the code that looks for this file.
  • Nim files can now be imported in .nimble nimscript files. (Issue #186)
  • Requiring a specific git commit hash no longer fails. (Issue #129)
