  • The wgdb tool now handles all common management functions, other tools are deprecated.
  • Fixed a memory leak in the Python module (Patrick Chen, Abishek Nanda)
  • script to create an easily embeddable amalgamation of source files (necrophcodr).
  • Support clang and other compilers when compiling manually (Jean-Marie Renouard, necrophcodr).
  • Numerous bugfixes.

The full change log is available via github commits.
