cargo-watch v7.5.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-07-04 // over 2 years ago
    • ๐Ÿš€ Log format (debugs and warnings) changed as part of the upgrade to watchexec 1.14
    • WATCHEXEC_* environment variables are not set for subprocesses anymore. I didn't actually intend to have them in the first place, but chime in if you rely on them!
    • โœ… #152 New --features option to pass the --features flag to a selection of cargo commands that support them. E.g. cargo watch --features feat -x check -x test can now be used instead of cargo watch -x 'check --features feat' -x 'test --features feat'.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Also fixes a bug where a polling message was shown even when --quiet was given.

Previous changes from v7.4.1

    • #149: if watched directory didn't contain a .git folder, thread would block (infinite loop)
    • ๐Ÿš€ Also, #BlackLivesMatter. Closer to home, #ArmsDownNZ (police here wants to arm up, fuck that). Over the pond, #AboriginalLivesMatter. #JunkTerrorBill a bit further away, and spare a thought for Hong Kong, which has been fighting since March last year! I'm not comfortable stating that on Watchexec (which I also maintain and is released concurrently) given it's not, originally, my project, but here I can.
