Tired of spending hours looking for what has changed in your dependencies?
Save your time! Gemnasium brings you 1-click changelogs!
For each of your project’s dependencies you can now quickly check what has changed. Just click on the Changelog viewer icon and start reading!
Gemnasium will automatically aggregate changelog data and scope it to what matters to you: the changes between your current version and the latest stable!
No changelog? We can still help you.
When package’s changelog is not available, Gemnasium still try to make it easier for you. It will indeed try to fall back to a nicely displayed list of commit messages.
At any time you can click on a commit from the list to see it on Github. You can also check the full compare view following the link provided in the header.
Our Changelog viewer is already included in all paid plans without any extra cost and is available to free users during their 30 days trial period.
For all existing free users, you’ll also be able to try it until june, 15th, enjoy!
We hope you’ll appreciate it and your feedback is welcome!
Cheers, Gemnasium Team
There are thousands of different changelogs (if any) out there, with dozens of different names. It’s almost impossible to fetch and parse them automatically… Gemnasium is using Vandamme to keep each changelog specificities (changelog location, version format, file format).
We really believe in changelogs. Following changes in dependencies is a hard task, and almost impossible by reading commits only.
The open-source world would be so much nicer with full, readable and comprehensive changelogs. As a solution to this problem, we propose a simple set of rules and requirements to follow in order to have a Standard Changelog. Please see the specs here:
