  • new builtins for printing and getting the types of a lens
  • add unit type to lens language; allow '_' as an identifier in let's to force evaluation for side effect only
  • Various fixes for Solaris. Augeas now builds cleanly on Solaris 5.10, and most of the tests pass. The three tests that fail all fail because the test scripts have Linux idiosyncrasies. This needs to be addressed in a future release. Much thanks to Dagobert Michelsen and the OpenCSW project for providing me with access to their build farm.
  • fix crash when recursive lens was used in a nonrecursive lens (bug #100)

0.7.0 - 2010-01-14

  • Support for context-free lenses via the 'let rec' keyword. The syntax is experimental, though the feature is here to stay. See lenses/json.aug for an example of what's possible with that.
  • Support for case-insensitive regular expressions. Simply append 'i' to a regexp literal to make it case-insensitive, e.g. /hello/i will match all variations of hello, regardless of case.

  • Fix endless loop when using a mixed-case module name like MyMod.lns

  • Fix 'short iteration' error on get/parse of empty string; this bug made it impossible to save into a new file
  • Add 'insa' and 'insb' primitives to allow insertion from put unit tests
  • aug_insert: handle insertion before first child properly
  • New lenses
    • /etc/exports: NFS exports
    • /etc/dput.cf: Debian's dput (Raphael Pinson)
    • /etc/aliases: don't require whitespace after comma (Greg Swift)

0.2.1 - 2008-07-01

  • Address some compilation issues found on Ubuntu/Debian unstable
  • Fix segfault when aug_init/close are called multiple times
  • Man page for augparse
  • New lens for /etc/sysconfig/selinux, bugfixes for grub.conf

0.2.0 - 2008-06-05

  • Augeas is now much more portable
    • Pull in gnulib on non-glibc systems
    • Augeas now builds and runs on FreeBSD (possibly others, too)
  • Various fixes for memory corruption and the like (Jim Meyering, James Antill)
  • New lenses
    • vsftpd.conf
    • various bugfixes in existing lenses

0.1.1 - 2008-05-16

  • Add subtraction of regexps to the language, for example let re = /[a-z]+/ - /(Allow|Deny)Users/ is now legal
  • Report errors during get/put in the tree; added subnodes to /augeas/files/PATH/error for that purpose
  • Many many bugfixes:
    • plugged all known memory leaks
    • fixed typecheck for lens union (l1 | l2) which was plain wrong
    • reduce overall memory usage by releasing unused compiled regexps
    • further performance improvements in libfa
    • check that values match the regexps in STORE when saving
  • libfa can now convert an automaton back to a regular expression (FA_AS_REGEXP)
  • New lenses for /etc/fstab, /etc/xinetd.conf and /etc/xinetd.d/*

0.1.0 - 2008-05-01

  • Various changes to public API:
    • Remove aug_exists from public API, and merge functionality into aug_get
    • Do not hide pointer behind typedef; instead Augeas 'handle' type is now struct augeas, typedef'd to augeas (Jim Meyering)
    • Const-correctness of public API, return error indication from aug_print (Jim Meyering)
    • Make buildable on Debian Etch (remove -fstack-protector from compiler switches)
  • Public API is now stable, and existing calls will be supported without further changes
  • New schema:
    • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* (Alan Pevec)
    • Assorted other files from /etc/sysconfig (the ones that just set shell variables)
    • /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* (Dean Wilson)
  • Man page for augtool (Dean Wilson)

0.0.8 - 2008-04-16

  • Complete rewrite of the language for schema descriptions

0.0.7 - 2008-03-14

  • Typecheck lenses; in particular, discover and complain about ambiguous concatenation and iteration
  • Enable typechecking for augparse by default, and for augtool via the '-c' flag
  • Fixed lens definitions in spec/ to pass typechecking. They contained quite a few stupid and subtle problems
  • Greatly improved libfa performance to make typechecking reasonably fast. Typechecking cmfm.aug went from more than two hours to under two seconds

0.0.6 - 2008-03-05

  • Make it possible to overwrite files when saving with and without backups
  • Take the filesystem root as an optional argument to aug_init
  • Expose these two things as command line options in augtool

0.0.5 - 2008-03-05

  • Changed public API to contain explicit reference to augeas_t structure. This makes it easier to write threadsafe code using Augeas
  • Added libfa, finite automata library, though it's not yet used by Augeas

0.0.4 - 2008-02-25

  • package as RPM and make sure Augeas can be build on Fedora/RHEL

0.0.3 - 2008-02-25

  • further rework; file processing now resembles Boomerang lenses much more closely
  • major revamp of the internal tree representation (ordered tree where multiple children can have the same label, including NULL labels)
  • move away from LL(1) parsing in favor of regular languages, since they enable much better ahead-of-time checks (which are not implemented yet)

0.0.2 - 2008-01-29:

  • completely reworked
  • processing of files is now based on a textual description of the structure of the files (basically a LL(1) grammar)

0.0.1 - 2007-12-01:

  • First release.
  • Public API and basic tree data structure.
  • Record scanning works.
  • Providers for pam.d, inittab and /etc/hosts
  • Simple tests and test driver
