I’m sorry for the delay on this one, everyone! I made not just one, but a whole bunch of mistakes on top of each other. I hope I learned from some of them, at least
For the record, the mistakes I’m aware of were:
Mistake: Changed too many things at the same time.
Proposed Solution: Make one major change per release, at most.
Mistake: Long break and lost context. I worked intensely on the hardest part (getting the git-like), but then took a week and a half to recharge. By the time I got back into it, I had forgotten a good chunk and it took time to get back up to speed.
Proposed Solution: if I need to take a break, I can do so, but I should still work at least 5 minutes a day on it, to keep things fresh.
Mistake: Premature optimization… I spend a great deal of time trying to get a particular package working with my code, because I thought the simpler alternative would be “too slow”… (it wasn’t).
Proposed Solution: when hitting myself against a wall, ask “does this really need to be done?”
Because of the aforementioned “changed too many things”, I need your feedback and bug reports on this release, more than any other.
Please post those here!
Thanks all of you for your continued support.
