Apache Yetus 0.11.0 Release Notes

These release notes cover new developer and user-facing incompatibilities, important issues, features, and major improvements.

Developers: The content of several files and internal structures have changed such that a leading './' on filenames will no longer be present. The root module will remain identified as '.', however.

The –pylint-options and PYLINT_OPTIONS environment variable have been removed. Personalities and command lines that still use that feature must switch to using a .pylintrc file instead.


precommit's commands (docker-cleanup, qbt, smart-apply-patch, test-patch) will now exit with an error if they are given a double-dashed option that is unknown. Using --ignore-unknown-options=true option will return to the previous behavior. Non double-dashed parameters continue to be considered the patch location.

This option will be removed in a future release.


This patch adds the delete_parameter routine. It should be called to remove an option from the variable that is being used to track which parameters have been processed. The internals of this tracking are still very much in flux and may change in the future.

Go support should be considered highly experimental. Some features are only available if Go module support has been turned on and actively in use. Be aware that due to go.mod being updated as part of the build, the repository will be cleaned and git checkout'd again between runs if --resetrepo or its equivalent has been turned on. Running without destructive git operations may result in skewed results.

shelldocs now a much larger variety of shell function definition formats.

GitHub users can now pass --github-use-emoji-vote and the vote table will use emoji hearts to indicate +1/0/-0/-1 rather than text.
