  • Fixed OAuth2.0 Invalid Scope bug. This issue was reported by @Guymer in issue #609. It was fixed by PR #610. This issue was a regression from PR #608.
  • Added a flag to specify an exact destination not in the current working directory. This feature was requested in the form of a question by @kevjonesin in issue #612. It was addressed by PR #616.

For example:

  • To push the content of music/Travi$+Future, integrals/complex/compilations directly to a1/b2/c3:
$ drive push --destination a1/b2/c3 music/Travi$+Future integrals/complex/compilations

where the sources exist on disk.

  • Do not show the progress bar if --quiet is set. This issue was identified by @chevillet in issue #636. It was addressed by PR #642.
  • Bumped up the minimum go version in the README from Go1.3 to Go1.5. This issue was reported by @ManuCart in issue #627. It was addressed by PR #633. This issue manifested because while using below Go1.5 yet pulling the latest from auxilliary dependencies e.g requires net/Context would give an error
go get -u
../.bin/go/src/ req.Cancel undefined (type *http.Request has no field or method Cancel)
  • Fixed up a data race with appending to a shared(highly contentious between multiple goroutines) internal change list tracker. This issue was reported by @sselph in issue #613. It was also addressed by @sselph in PR #639. The diagnosis of this issue was pretty interesting aside from using the race detector because @sselph noticed this problem only manifested that when the requested number of max goroutines running was 1, the problem disappeared, whereas if it were set above that, all hell broke loose. This observation led him to turn on the race detector and alas the problem was identified!
  • Rename now also renames the local file/directory, not just the remote one. This feature was requested by @smblott-github in issue #459. It was fixed by PR #632. Sample usage:
  • To turn off local renaming
$ drive rename --local=false a/b/c/d pam
  • To turn off remote renaming
$ drive rename --remote=false bcd tkf

It should warn you too if you turn off both local and remote renaming

$ drive rename --local=false --remote=false 5 6
no rename mode set, set either `local` or `remote` mode
$ echo $?

This release has been at a better pace than the last 2 or 3. More features added, more lessons learned, more bugs fixed. Let's keep this train steam rolling. This release was actually made in anticaption of an upcoming feature that will provide end to end encryption for files, built by @sselph (peek at it here #645), using drive. I can't wait for this 🔥🔥🔥 in the next release.
