github nojhan/liquidprompt v1.12.0
Version 1.12.0

After more than 4 years, it's finally here. While the project needs much more work, there were enough pending changes and needed small fixes that a minor version release was needed. This release also sees the project moving to true Semantic Versioning, which is why this is a *.*.0 release. Bug fix releases between now and v2.0 will be of the form 1.12.1 and following.

In general, this release contains mostly fixes, but there are a few added features. Liquidprompt still has a lot of work to do with issues, but this release should have a lot less of them than the previous release.

As we move towards breaking changes for 2.0, I would recommend users stay targeting this tag, unless they want to help debug issues as we work on 2.0, in which case you can follow master.
