We’re happy to announce the 0.8.0 release of Nu. This continues a series of internal improvements, with better stability and correctness, and, of course, new features.
2019 was quite the year for Nushell. We landed the initial commit on May 10th, and 1881 commits later we find ourselves at the end of 2019. What all happened this year?
We started off with quite the bang! After quietly working on Nu for a few months, we wrote up a blog post to explain what Nu was. To our surprise, the post got a surprisingly warm reception! Soon, we were recording a podcast with the Changelog to talk about Nu.
As the excitement calmed back to everyday levels, we got to the work of turning this minimum-viable product into the real thing. More than 65 people joined us to help fix bugs, test code, write docs, and explore new directions.
We’re happy to announce the 0.7.0 release of Nu. This release has a couple new features, bugfixes, and lots of internal improvements on the way to upcoming features.
A recent project, Nushell aims to solve some of these issues. Nushell is a cross-platform shell written in Rust which works on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It is still in the very early stages and only a few months old as of the time of this writing, although development seems to be going at a rapid pace with a 3-week release cycle. Aside from the cross-platform aspect of Nushell, one of the more appealing features is how Nushell treats data. Instead of treating all data as raw text, Nushell takes some inspiration from PowerShell and treats data as structured tables or objects. This enables Nushell to support a rich command and plugin system to manipulate data in very useful and declarative ways.
With 0.6.0, we’re excited to show off the ability to integrate with starship. Starship is a powerful prompt being built in Rust, and it includes tons of fun features.
Recently, we ran a short survey to see how you were feeling about Nushell. We wanted to give a very hearty “thank you!” to everyone who participated. These surveys are a great way to gather information about how people are feeling, where they’re happy, and where they feel there are pain points.
In total, 160 people responded. An impressive amount for a project still in its first few months in the public.
We've just released Nushell 0.5.0! New - login shell support, recycle bin support, better string matching, parameter help, new commands, and more!
