Giter8 0.12.0

in

giter8.version

I added a small app called giter8-launcher for Giter8 0.12.0. The purpose of the app is to make the behavior of the Giter8 template more predictable. Today, template authors may create a template for some version of Giter8 X, but the users might use some other version of Giter8 Y that ships with "sbt new."

parallel cross building with VirtualAxis

This is part 2 of the post about sbt-projectmatrix, an experimental plugin that I've been working to improve the cross building in sbt. Here's part 1. I've just released 0.4.0.

  • sbt-projectmatrix enables parallel building of multiple Scala versions and JVM/JS/Native cross building.
  • VirtualAxis allows flexible inter-matrix dependencies between Scala-Java matrix, and custom cross-library axis.

Pamflet 0.8.2

in

Pamflet is a publishing application for short texts, particularly user documentation of open-source software.

Pamflet 0.8.2 updates its monospace typeface to SFMono, and undoes the incidental pink color that got introduced when I migrated from Blueprint to Bootstrap.

sbt 1.3.0

Released sbt 1.3.0.

semantics of dependency resolvers

in

The semantics of a dependency resolver determine the concrete classpath based on the user-specified dependency constraints. Typically the differences in the details manifest as different way the version conflicts are resolved.

  • Maven uses nearest-wins strategy, which could downgrade transitive dependencies
  • Ivy uses latest-wins strategy
  • Coursier generally uses latest-wins strategy, but it's tries to enforce version range strictly
  • Ivy's version range handling goes to the Internet, which makes the build non-repeatable
  • Coursier orders version string completely differently from Ivy

Expecty 0.12.0 and 0.13.0
