Veracity 0.9.1 Release Notes
0.9.1 Release Notes
Veracity 0.9.1 is now available for download at http://veracity-scm.com/downloads.html.
For roughly the past year, we've said that Veracity is not ready for hosting real projects unless you're very patient. This was mostly because we thought we might still change a repository storage format in ways that might not be backward compatible. We're not saying that anymore. We're confident there will be no breaking changes in the future. You can be confident that a repository created with Veracity 0.9.1 will work with any future release.
The Usual Suspects
- Several commands got cleaned up and consolidated in the style of "vv branch". "vv help" has details.
- Lots and lots of bug fixes and user-friendliness improvements in both the command-line and web interfaces.
- You can now install Veracity from an APT repository on Ubuntu: http://veracity-scm.com/help/ubuntu_install.html.
- We've (finally) put up a public server hosting the veracity repository at http://public.veracity-scm.com.
Since the last drop, we've added support for modules - collections of server and client-side code which will eventually
support different workflows, agile methodologies, probably even (shudder) waterfalls. We've begun moving much of
Veracity's own web interface out into a "scrum" module already.
From the user's point of view, nothing has changed; but those of you transitioning an existing Veracity 0.9 (or earlier)
installation will need to exercise just a bit of caution when running a new build for the first time.
See http://veracity-scm.com/qa/questions/43/what-does-a-field-not-found-error-message-mean for full instructions on migrating existing repositories for module support.
Veracity Q&A site
The link above stole my thunder, but nonetheless: we've launched a veracity Q&A site at http://veracity-scm.com/qa. One might consider this a more (ahem) modern alternative to the mailing list, but we'll continue to provide support on both.
