This shouldn't have been released as 0.8.2, because it has a lot of breaking changes.

For an instance anything that relies on HTTPServerRequest.path will break.

I'm aware that there has been added the "requestPath" property, but it's still a breaking change to all existing code that relies on the old "path" property. Especially when it's used to manipulate the path you receive.

Diamond cannot currently be used with latest release of vibe.d, because of this and it was relying on vibe.d with following dependency:

"vibe-d": "~>0.8.1"

0.8.2 should not be a breaking change, assuming you follow semantic versioning.

4. Major version zero (0.y.z) is for initial development. Anything may change at any time. The public API should not be considered stable.

0.x.Y should always be compatible with 0.x.Z without breaking changes.


This is a patch release 0.8.1 to 0.8.2 which means:

"PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes."

Even a minor version should be backward-compatible.

"MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and"

I'm all for deprecating said features, but plain removing them in a release like this is a breaking change and should at the very least be a minor version upgrade, but definitely not a patch.

The above was actually a quote from the spec, so there is no doubt that any 0.x.y release may contain breaking changes. But apart from that, the development has always gone this way so far. I just made 0.8.0 a new "minor" version, because it is in many ways a much larger step than the previous releases and not all breaking changes could reasonably follow the usual deprecation paths.

However, as individual sub packages are separated out into their own repositories (such as diet-ng and vibe-core), their versioning will start as 1.0.0 and will follow the usual versioning rules for >= 1.x.y releases.

But what do you mean with anything will break using `.path`? It follows the usual deprecation path - currently it's just documented as deprecated. In one or two releases, the `deprecated` attribute will be set and a few releases later it will finally be removed. By that time projects will have had quite some time to react on the deprecation.
