Released version 1.82.0

We released version 1.82.0 of n98-magerun. If you are wondering about the long time between the last release
and the new one i will give you some informations about the release cycle.
Since the last year, many people decided to use n98-magerun in backup, deployment and development processes.
To give this people a little bit more stability we decided to reduce the number of major releases.

The new claim is: Stability over Features

Released version 1.81.0

You don’t like Mondays? I hope this gives you a good start in the new week.
We published a new n98-magerun release and packed some nice features in it.

Script Features

The script command will be more powerful.
We changed the behavior of variables initalized with “?” for example ${foo}=?.
If you define a variable from outside n98-magerun will not prompt anymore. This give you the power
to write parameterized scripts.

Released Version 1.78.0

We deployed a new stable n98-magerun version with some internal changes which are great if you are developing custom database driven commands.
The new version contains also some minor features and uncritical bugfixes.

New Database Helper

In some cases it’s useful to run commands directly on your database. In the past it was usual to extend the class AbstractDatabaseCommand and call methods like _getConnection which returns a PDO Object.

We now ported all methods of this abstract class to a new console helper which can be called in command context.
It’s very easy to use the database functions.
