- This game is so slow at developing it almost mirrors how slow the in game progression is. The creator has falling into the same hole as so many others of trying to fan out to too many characters far to early and spreading the game thin and wide instead of concentrating on what the main theme of the game should be.
A changelog is a file which contains a curated, chronologically ordered list of notable changes for each version of a project.
Why keep a changelog?
To make it easier for users and contributors to see precisely what notable changes have been made between each release (or version) of the project.
Who needs a changelog?
People do. Whether consumers or developers, the end users of software are human beings who care about what's in the software. When the software changes, people want to know why and how.

How do I make a good changelog?
- Changelogs are for humans, not machines.
- There should be an entry for every single version.
- The same types of changes should be grouped.
- Versions and sections should be linkable.
- The latest version comes first.
- The release date of each version is displayed.
- Mention whether you follow Semantic Versioning.
Types of changes
Addedfor new features.
Changedfor changes in existing functionality.
Deprecatedfor soon-to-be removed features.
Removedfor now removed features.
Fixedfor any bug fixes.
Securityin case of vulnerabilities.
How can I reduce the effort required to maintain a changelog?
Unreleased section at the top to track upcoming changes.
This serves two purposes:
- People can see what changes they might expect in upcoming releases
- At release time, you can move the
Unreleasedsection changes into a new release version section.
Can changelogs be bad?
Yes. Here are a few ways they can be less than useful.
Commit log diffs
Using commit log diffs as changelogs is a bad idea: they're full of noise. Things like merge commits, commits with obscure titles, documentation changes, etc.
The purpose of a commit is to document a step in the evolution of the source code. Some projects clean up commits, some don't.
The purpose of a changelog entry is to document the noteworthy difference, often across multiple commits, to communicate them clearly to end users.
When people upgrade from one version to another, it should be painfully clear when something will break. It should be possible to upgrade to a version that lists deprecations, remove what's deprecated, then upgrade to the version where the deprecations become removals.
If you do nothing else, list deprecations, removals, and any breaking changes in your changelog.
Regional date formats vary throughout the world and it's often difficult to find a human-friendly date format that feels intuitive to everyone. The advantage of dates formatted like
2017-07-17 is that they follow the order of largest to smallest units: year, month, and day. This format also doesn't overlap in ambiguous ways with other date formats, unlike some regional formats that switch the position of month and day numbers. These reasons, and the fact this date format is an ISO standard, are why it is the recommended date format for changelog entries.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a standard changelog format?
Not really. There's the GNU changelog style guide, or the two-paragraph-long GNU NEWS file 'guideline'. Both are inadequate or insufficient.
This project aims to be a better changelog convention. It comes from observing good practices in the open source community and gathering them.
Healthy criticism, discussion and suggestions for improvements are welcome.
What should the changelog file be named?
CHANGELOG.md. Some projects use
While it's easy to think that the name of your changelog file doesn't matter that much, why make it harder for your end users to consistently find notable changes?
What about GitHub Releases?
It's a great initiative. Releases can be used to turn simple git tags (for example a tag named
v1.0.0) into rich release notes by manually adding release notes or it can pull annotated git tag messages and turn them into notes.
GitHub Releases create a non-portable changelog that can only be displayed to users within the context of GitHub. It's possible to make them look very much like the Keep a Changelog format, but it tends to be a bit more involved.

The current version of GitHub releases is also arguably not very discoverable by end-users, unlike the typical uppercase files (
CONTRIBUTING, etc.). Another minor issue is that the interface doesn't currently offer links to commit logs between each release.
Can changelogs be automatically parsed?
It’s difficult, because people follow wildly different formats and file names.
Vandamme is a Ruby gem created by the Gemnasium team and which parses many (but not all) open source project changelogs.
What about yanked releases?
Yanked releases are versions that had to be pulled because of a serious bug or security issue. Often these versions don't even appear in change logs. They should. This is how you should display them:
## 0.0.5 - 2014-12-13 [YANKED]
[YANKED] tag is loud for a reason. It's important for people to notice it. Since it's surrounded by brackets it's also easier to parse programmatically.
Should you ever rewrite a changelog?
Sure. There are always good reasons to improve a changelog. I regularly open pull requests to add missing releases to open source projects with unmaintained changelogs.
It's also possible you may discover that you forgot to address a breaking change in the notes for a version. It's obviously important for you to update your changelog in this case.

How can I contribute?
Changelog 4 27/18clout Games Free
This document is not the truth; it’s my carefully considered opinion, along with information and examples I gathered.
This is because I want our community to reach a consensus. I believe the discussion is as important as the end result.
So please pitch in.
I went on The Changelog podcast to talk about why maintainers and contributors should care about changelogs, and also about the motivations behind this project.
