Buckaroo 1.3 has been released! Here’s a break-down of what we’ve been up to…
Simplified Installation for Debian 🐧
We now host Debian packages for Buckaroo and Buck for a simpler installation process. Furthermore we offer a self-contained version of Buckaroo for linux-amd64 that does not require a java installation
GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket Integration 🐙🐈
We strongly believe in decentralisation and want to encourage open-source, so now you can install packages directly from GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket. All you have to do is specify the package source when you install. For example:
buckaroo install github+loopperfect/neither
We connect via SSH, so private repositories are supported too!
Support for 4 Digit Version Numbers 🍀
Some libraries, such as GLM, have a 4th digit in their version number. Whilst this isn’t strictly a semantic version, it is easy to extend the semantic versioning scheme to support them. We think this is a pragmatic solution, so we have added it to Buckaroo.
