Watchexec 1.15.0

Release notes

  • CI and releases switch from Travis to Github Actions.
  • #178 Add arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf and aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu builds.
  • #180 Add --changes-only option to print what changes (for debugging purposes, not for consuming).
  • Add --shell=SHELL and deprecate --no-shell.
  • The above allows to use powershell instead of cmd (--shell=powershell), which solves #80. On Windows, powershell will become the CLI default in v2.0, and is the new default right now in the library.
  • Undocument --kill from the man page, help, and completion. It will be removed in v2.0.
  • In the library, Args is renamed to Config and the old name deprecated.
  • In the library, get_args is deprecated in the view to be removed at some point (and only exist in the CLI).
  • In the builder, durations are now Durations instead of integers of milliseconds.
  • In the builder, restart and watch_when_idle are deprecated and replaced with on_busy_update which clarifies the behaviour when receiving updates while a command is running.
  • Add --on-busy-update= option to expose that builder option.
  • Deprecate --watch-when-idle (ref #123) in favour of --on-busy-update=do-nothing.
  • Add binstall metadata.
  • Add DEB packages for every linux build.
  • Increase MSRV to 1.43.0.
