The newsgroup backend has been down most of this week, so near zero activity. It came back up shortly before I started writing this post.
See more at the announce forum.
arsd 11 was scheduled for release in mid May. Despite things looking promising in March, many other things came up that required my attention in April and onward, making me miss that goal, and while it still isn't all where I want it, I did continue some development work and have some nice stuff to release. I believe the remaining things can be done in an additive fashion in minor releases.
I did document some of the new things as destabilized with the 11.0 release. arsd.database and arsd.game are old modules that are now in flux. arsd.minigui's default theme is going to change soon (minimally, I'll change the font on linux). These have possible breakage not included in 11.0 per se, but until further notice, you should not depend on every detail being the same. (I will, of course, try to limit actual breakage from here.)
The new arsd.core library is currently designated for internal use only with no public stable api. You are free to play around with it, but don't expect anything to even actually work right now, and changes are likely. If you tell me something is broken, my likely answer will be "I know, don't use it then". I will likely declare certain parts stable in the coming months, but the module as a whole is still intended for internal use and I will deliberately introduce some clashing symbols to enforce arsd policy. If you do use it, I recommend you static import it to avoid these clashes (unless you also want to follow my policy whims).
Anyway, among the working, stable things in this release:
The diff between this and the previous tag is some twenty thousand lines long. Some of that is just whitespace changes (a contributor ran a trimmer to remove some trailing whitespace), but much of it is real code and documentation, so it was time to stop delaying the tag and get this out. Even if parts aren't done yet, I think there's enough to gain here that people might enjoy these.
