Since my last post, in which I announced version v0.4.0 of film snob and kind of agonized over the decision to mark it as a minor release, I’ve gone ahead and made two more minor releases. I have much less anxiety about it now. In fact, I wish I had been doing that earlier.
I decided to do some release notes on the release section of the GitHub repo, instead of here: https://github.com/maxjacobson/film_snob/releases.
While adding release notes for the very oldest versions, from April, I laughed seeing how stuck I was on v0.3.x, not sure when I was allowed to move forward, and just continuing to add these patch level releases for things that were totally new functionality.
Here’s what’s new in v0.5.0: https://github.com/maxjacobson/film_snob/releases/tag/v0.5.0.
And here’s what’s new in v0.6.0: https://github.com/maxjacobson/film_snob/releases/tag/v0.6.0.
The next big thing I’ll need to decide be when to mark the major release of
v1.0.0. I had some ideas about breaking changes that I would like to
make, so I thought I would save those for the first major release, but then a
very generous stranger implemented those ideas and made some pull requests, so I
have to decide if I’m ready to make it happen now. Why not, I guess?
