Package Aggregated Release Notes

Steven Dusing


Every time you build a VI Package, you are prompted to specify release notes.  These are not very usable at the moment though.  To read these, you need to right click on the package, select "Get Info" and then read the specific version's release notes. If you're catching up on a new version of package that's more than a couple versions newer than what you've been using, it can take a long time to understand what the impacts to that package are.  I would like to propose VIPM have an option to view aggregated release notes. This would be exposed in a right click option on a given package, and aggregate all individual release notes for all versions of the package that are in the library.

The goal would be to have an easy way to see something like the following:

My Package

  • v2.0.0.1 - New Release with some groundbreaking features
  • v1.2.0.1 - Minor update made to feature Z
  • v1.1.1.1 - Patch for bug X
  • v1.1.0.0 - Minor update to add feature Y
  • v1.0.0.0 - First release of my cool tool

Hey Steve,

This is a great idea and has been on our mind, too. I'd love to see this feature in VIPM Desktop.

In the meantime, (as shown in the screenshots below) you can see the linearized release notes on the package's homepage on vipm.io (for publicly released packages, of course -- that won't work for private packages in your or your company's own reuse library).

Hope that helps a little and thanks for the great idea! You get my vote :)
