Changes in version 0.9.1
The following changes were implemented in Fabric 0.9.1:
- #82: append now offers a partial kwarg
allowing control over whether the “don’t append if given text already exists”
test looks for exact matches or not. Thanks to Jonas Nockert for the catch
- #112: fab --list now prints out the fabfile’s module-level
docstring as a header, if there is one.
- #141: Added some more CLI args/env vars to allow user configuration
of the Paramiko connect call – specifically no_agent and
- #75: fab, when called with no arguments or (useful) options, now
prints help, even when no fabfile can be found. Previously, calling fab
in a location with no fabfile would complain about the lack of fabfile
instead of displaying help.
- #130: Context managers now correctly clean up env if they
encounter an exception. Thanks to Carl Meyer for catch + patch.
- #132: local now calls strip on its stdout,
matching the behavior of run/sudo.
Thanks to Carl Meyer again on this one.
- #166: cd now correctly overwrites
env.cwd when given an absolute path, instead of naively appending its
argument to env.cwd‘s previous value.
- A number of small to medium documentation tweaks were made which had no
specific Redmine ticket. The largest of these is the addition of the
FAQ to the Sphinx documentation instead of storing it as a
source-only text file. (Said FAQ was also slightly expanded with new FAQs.)
- #17: Added note to FAQ re: use of dtach as
alternative to screen. Thanks to Erich Heine for the tip.
- #64: Updated installation docs to clarify where
package maintainers should be downloading tarballs from. Thanks to James
Pearson for providing the necessary perspective.
- #95: Added a link to a given version’s changelog on the PyPI page
(technically, to the setup.py long_description field).
- #110: Alphabetized the CLI argument command reference. Thanks to Erich Heine.
- #120: Tweaked documentation, help strings to make it more obvious
that fabfiles are simply Python modules.
- #127: Added note to install docs re: ActiveState’s
PyPM. Thanks to Sridhar Ratnakumar for the tip.
