today is the release of brig 0.4.0 (alias »Capricious Clownfish« to keep up this silly naming tradition).
Even though it has been only about 4 months since the last release, there are a ton of improvements:
- New, shiny browser based UI (see below for screenshot).
- New event subsystems for “realtime” updates.
- A running IPFS daemon can be used now.
- Reworked pinning strategy.
- Reworked documentation.
See the CHANGELOG for the full list of features.
Also starting with this release, we have pre-compiled binaries that are only one command away:
# Before exuecuting this, ask yourself: Do you trust me? $ bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sahib/brig/master/scripts/install.sh) $ ./brig --help
Please see the documentation to see what is
brig is about and how it can be used.
I plan to do smaller, but more frequent releases from now on, focusing more on performance, stability and UX improvements. Here’s also a screenshot of the UI:
Hope to hear from you & have fun,
