- Update to version 0.15.0
  * Features
  - This release adds a new --diff/-d option that can be used to
    only show lines surrounding Git changes, i.e. added, removed
    or modified lines. The amount of additional context can be
    controlled with --diff-context=N. See #23 and #940
  * Bugfixes
  - Error message printed in the middle of the output for another
    file, see #946
    Performance improvements when using custom caches (via bat
    cache --build): the bat startup time should now be twice as
  * Themes
  - Updated version of the Solarized dark/light themes, see #941
  * bat as a library
  - There are a few changes in the "low level" API (the Config
    struct has changed andthe error handler needs a new &mut dyn
    Write argument). The high-level API is not affected.
- Changes from version 0.14.0
  * Features
  - Added a new --file-name <name>… option to overwrite the
    displayed filename(s) in the header. This is useful when
    piping input into bat. See #654 and #892.
  - Added a new --generate-config-file option to create an
    initial configuration file at the right place. See #870.
  * Bugfixes
  - Performance problems with C# source code have been fixed, see
  - Performance problems with Makefiles have been fixed, see #750
  - Fix bug when highlighting Ruby files with unindented heredocs
    , see #914
  - A highlighting problem with Rust source code has been fixed,
    see #924
  - --highlight-line did not work correctly in combination with
  - -tabs=0 and --wrap=never, see #937
  * Other
  - When saving/reading user-provided syntaxes or themes, bat
    will now maintain a metadata.yaml file which includes
    information about the bat version which was used to create
    the cached files. When loading cached files, we now print an
    error if they have been created with an incompatible version.
    See #882
  - Updated liquid dependency to 0.20, see #880
  * bat as a library
  - A completely new "high level" API has been added that is much
    more convenient to use. See the examples folder for the
    updated code. It is recommended to only use the new
    "high level" API, if possible. Note that this should still
    be considered a "beta" release of bat-as-a-library.
    For more details and some screenshots of the example
    programs, see #936.
  - Stripped out a lot of binary-only dependencies, see #895 and
