This release, our first for a while, introduces a new
:scriptpacks REPL command, fixes a bug which prevented
else from being used in Mono and many other small enhancements, bug fixes and performance improvements as well as a significant API change. See 'Issue Details' below for more details.
For API users (hosting or other programmatic usage), there is one major change, the deprecation of Common.Logging (#847). This has been replaced by LibLog, but this is an internal implementation detail, since LibLog is a source code package. The end effect for scriptcs API users is that the members which use Common.Logging types have been obsoleted in the public API and replaced with new members which use types under the
ScriptCs.Contracts namespace. Support for the Common.Logging types will be removed completely in a later release and the dependency on Common.Logging will be removed entirely, so you are encouraged to switch to the new API as soon as possible.
All script packs, script libraries, modules, hosts and other code which uses the scriptcs NuGet packages should be changed to switch from using the Common.Logging members to the new API members as soon as possible to prevent breakage when Common.Logging is removed. For more details, see the related blog post.
For users of ScriptCs.Hosting there is also a further minor change to make the API a little more friendly (#998).
Breaking API Changes
Low impact: The
ScriptCs.Hosting.IScriptServicesBuilder interface has a new method,
LoadScriptPacks(bool load = true). Given there is little utility for API users in implementing this interface, it is extremely unlikely that this will cause any breakages. Indeed, this interface may even be removed in future.
