Hello Yarners! 🤗
What a month (and a bit) it has been! 😅 During this time we’ve closed out
78 Pull Requests, 55 Issues from the hard work of 8 contributors over 174 commits!
yarnd v0.13 is special because this will be the last release
for a while. The project will be entering a “feature freeze” whilst the developers
and active contributors slow down a bit and work on some other much-needed components.
We will be working on improving documentation, deployment guides, builtin pages
and other supporting services and components in the ecosystem. In addition a
decision has been made to relicense all software components under a new license
(AGPLv3) going forward. We hope this will not affect contributions in any way but
will also serve to protect what we’ve all worked so hard to build.
But don’t worry! We will still be committing to
main, we just won’t be adding
and new significant new features for a while.
Without further ado, here are the following changes for our 0.12 release!Highlights
