Day 21-23: After Europython and releases
This week I came back from EuroPython (which was awesome!), so on Monday I was busy with responding to issues, reading crash reports and reviewing PRs which accumulated during my "holiday".
Yesterday I released qutebrowser v0.8.0, as I had to get a new release out ASAP because of breaking changes in Qt 5.7, and enough changes for a new real release (rather than a simple patch release) accumulated.
I then noticed the OS X .app release was broken, due to a packaging issues. I fixed the build script, added a smoke test to notice such issues in the future, and uploaded a new package.
Today, a total of four crash reports for the same issue came in (even though nobody reported it before the release), where qutebrowser crashed when simply doing :<enter> due to a change how aliases are handled.
So I decided to fix that and do an immediate v0.8.1 release, since it's likely that more people would run into this.
