I’m quite happy about this release. It’s been a long time in the making, but we’ve seen many improvements, the most notable being:
- A fast diff algorithm, which was still one of the major painpoints.
- A massive simplification of the outputting algorithm, which is starting to be provable.
- PGP keys, provided by the Sequoia PGP project.
I’d say the main thing to expect before 1.0 could be one last format change to reduce the disk space usage, and handle large (possibly binary) files more easily. The patch format shouldn’t change, so there will be almost no disruption.
Edit (23/4/2019): I’ve written more details here.
