- Replace %fdupes -s with plain %fdupes; hardlinks are better.
* Sat Dec 22 2018
- update to version 7.0:
  * Drop support for Python 2.6 and 3.3.
  * Wrap ``click.Choice``'s missing message.
  * Add native ZSH autocompletion support.
  * Document that ANSI color info isn't parsed from bytearrays in
    Python 2.
  * Document byte-stripping behavior of ``CliRunner``.
  * Usage errors now hint at the ``--help`` option.
  * Implement streaming pager.
  * Extract bar formatting to its own method.
  * Add ``DateTime`` type for converting input in given date time
  * ``secho``'s first argument can now be ``None``, like in ``echo``.
  * Fixes a ``ZeroDivisionError`` in ``ProgressBar.make_step``, when the
    arg passed to the first call of ``ProgressBar.update`` is 0.
  * Show progressbar only if total execution time is visible.
  * Added the ability to hide commands and options from help.
  * Document that options can be ``required=True``.
  * Non-standalone calls to ``Context.exit`` return the exit code,
    rather than calling ``sys.exit``.
  * ``click.getchar()`` returns Unicode in Python 3 on Windows,
    consistent with other platforms.
  * Added ``FloatRange`` type.
  * Added support for bash completion of ``type=click.Choice`` for
  ``Options`` and ``Arguments``.
  * Only allow one positional arg for ``Argument`` parameter
  * Add ``case_sensitive=False`` as an option to Choice.
  * ``click.getchar()`` correctly raises ``KeyboardInterrupt`` on "^C"
    and ``EOFError`` on "^D" on Linux.
  * Fix encoding issue with ``click.getchar(echo=True)`` on Linux.
  * ``param_hint`` in errors now derived from param itself.
  * Add a test that ensures that when an argument is formatted into a
    usage error, its metavar is used, not its name.
  * Allow setting ``prog_name`` as extra in ``CliRunner.invoke``.
  * Help text taken from docstrings truncates at the ``\f`` form feed
    character, useful for hiding Sphinx-style parameter documentation.

  * ``CliRunner.invoke`` now may receive ``args`` as a string
    representing a Unix shell command.
  * Make ``Argument.make_metavar()`` default to type metavar.

  * Avoid ``BrokenPipeError`` during interpreter shutdown when stdout or
    stderr is a closed pipe.
  * Document customizing option names.
  * Disable ``sys._getframes()`` on Python interpreters that don't
    support it.
  * Fix bug in test runner when calling ``sys.exit`` with ``None``.
  * Clarify documentation on command line options.

  * Fix bug that caused bash completion to give improper completions on
    chained commands.
  * Added support for dynamic bash completion from a user-supplied
  * Added support for bash completions containing spaces.

    completions that start with the incomplete argument.
  * Fix option naming routine to match documentation and be
  * Fix path validation bug.
  * Add test and documentation for ``Option`` naming: functionality.
  * Update doc to match arg name for ``path_type``.

  * Overcome 64k character limit when writing to binary stream on
    Windows 7.
  * Add bool conversion for "t" and "f".
  * ``NoSuchOption`` errors take ``ctx`` so that ``--help`` hint gets
    printed in error output.
  * Fixed the behavior of Click error messages with regards to Unicode
    on 2.x and 3.x. Message is now always Unicode and the str and
    Unicode special methods work as you expect on that platform.
  * Progress bar now uses stderr by default.
  * Add support for auto-completion documentation.
  * Allow ``CliRunner`` to separate stdout and stderr.
  * Fix variable precedence.

  * When detecting a misconfigured locale, don't fail if the ``locale``
    command fails.
  * Add ``case_sensitive=False`` as an option to ``Choice`` types.
  * Force stdout/stderr writable. This works around issues with badly
    patched standard streams like those from Jupyter.
  * Fix completion of subcommand options after last argument
  * ``_AtomicFile`` now uses the ``realpath`` of the original filename
    so that changing the working directory does not affect it.

  * Better handling of help text for dynamic default option values.
  * Fix ``get_winter_size()`` so it correctly returns ``(0,0)``.
  * Add test case checking for custom param type.
  * Allow short width to address cmd formatting.
  * Add details about Python version support.
  * Added deprecation flag to commands.
  * Fixed issues where ``fd`` was undefined.

  * Use Python sorting order for ZSH completions.
  * Document that parameter names are converted to lowercase by default.
  * Subcommands that are named by the function now automatically have
    the underscore replaced with a dash. If you register a function
    named ``my_command`` it becomes ``my-command`` in the command line

* Thu Dec 03 2015
- Update to version 6.2
  * Correct fix for hidden progress bars.
- Changes from version 6.1
  * Resolved an issue with invisible progress bars no longer
  * Disable chain commands with subcommands as they were
    inherently broken.
  * Fix `MissingParameter` not working without parameters passed.
- Changes from version 6.0
  * Optimized the progressbar rendering to not render when it did
    not actually change.
  * Explicitly disallow nargs=-1 with a set default.
  * The context is now closed before it's popped from the stack.
  * Added support for short aliases for the false flag on
  * Click will now attempt to aid you with debugging locale
    errors better by listing with the help of the OS what locales
    are available.
  * Click used to return byte strings on Python 2 in some
    unit-testing situations.  This has been fixed to correctly
    return unicode strings now.
  * For Windows users on Python 2, Click will now handle Unicode
    more correctly handle Unicode coming in from the system.
    This also has the disappointing side effect that filenames
    will now be always unicode by default in the `Path` type
    which means that this can introduce small bugs for code not
    aware of this.
  * Added a `type` parameter to `Path` to force a specific string
    type on the value.
  * For users running Python on Windows the `echo`) and `prompt`
    functions now work with full unicode functionality in the
    Python windows console by emulating an output stream.  This
    also applies to getting the virtual output and input streams
    via `click.get_text_stream(...)`.
  * Unittests now always force a certain virtual terminal width.
  * Added support for allowing dashes to indicate standard
    streams to the `Path` type.
  * Multi commands in chain mode no longer propagate arguments
    left over from parsing to the callbacks.  It's also now
    disallowed through an exception when optional arguments are
    attached to multi commands if chain mode is enabled.
  * Relaxed restriction that disallowed chained commands to have
    other chained commands as child commands.
  * Arguments with positive nargs can now have defaults
    implemented.  Previously this configuration would often
    result in slightly unexpected values be returned.
- Changes from version 5.1
  * Fix a bug in `pass_obj` that would accidentally pass the
    context too.
- Changes from version 5.0
  * Removed various deprecated functionality.
  * Atomic files now only accept the `w` mode.
  * Change the usage part of help output for very long commands
    to wrap their arguments onto the next line, indented by 4
  * Fix a bug where return code and error messages were incorrect
    when using ``CliRunner``.
  * added `get_current_context`.
  * added a `meta` dictionary to the context which is shared
    across the linked list of contexts to allow click utilities
    to place state there.
  * introduced `Context.scope`.
  * The `echo` function is now threadsafe: It calls the `write`
    method of the underlying object only once.
  * `prompt(hide_input=True)` now prints a newline on `^C`.
  * Click will now warn if users are using ``unicode_literals``.
  * Click will now ignore the ``PAGER`` environment variable if
    it is empty or contains only whitespace.
  * The `click-contrib` GitHub organization was created.
* Sat Jul 18 2015
- Update to version 4.1
  * Fix a bug where error messages would include a trailing
    None string.
  * Fix a bug where Click would crash on docstrings with
    trailing newlines.
  Version 4.0:
  * Added color parameters to lots of interfaces that directly
    or indirectly call into echoing. This previously was always
    autodetection (with the exception of the echo_via_pager
    function). Now you can forcefully enable or disable it,
    overriding the auto detection of Click.
  * Added an UNPROCESSED type which does not perform any type
    changes which simplifies text handling on 2.x / 3.x in
    some special advanced usecases.
  * Added NoSuchOption and BadOptionUsage exceptions for more
    generic handling of errors.
  * Added support for handling of unprocessed options which
    can be useful in situations where arguments are forwarded
    to underlying tools.
  * Added max_content_width parameter to the context which
    can be used to change the maximum width of help output.
    By default Click will not format content for more than
    80 characters width.
  * Added support for writing prompts to stderr.
  * Fix a bug when showing the default for multiple arguments.
  * Added support for custom subclasses to option and argument.
  * Fix bug in clear() on Windows when colorama is installed.
  * Reject nargs=-1 for options properly. Options cannot be
  * Fixed an issue with bash completion not working properly
    for commands with non ASCII characters or dashes.
  * Added a way to manually update the progressbar.
  * Changed the formatting of missing arguments. Previously
    the internal argument name was shown in error messages,
    now the metavar is shown if passed. In case an automated
    metavar is selected, it?s stripped of extra formatting first.
