Today I’d like to announce Homebrew 1.7.0. The most significant changes since 1.7.0 are fixes for macOS 10.14 Mojave’s developer beta, Homebrew Formulae’s JSON analytics and formulae APIs and various formula API deprecations.
Major changes and deprecations since 1.6.0:
- macOS 10.14 Mojave and Xcode 10 are now working for some formulae (but not yet supported)
- Homebrew Formulae now uses HTTPS, provides anonymous aggregate analytics data and has a JSON API for formulae and analytics data
- Homebrew Cask’s taps have now all moved to the Homebrew GitHub organisation
HOMEBREW_FORCE_BREWED_GITmakes Homebrew use a Homebrew-installed rather than system Git
upgradedisplay all caveats at the end of installing multiple formulae
- Many formula deprecations have been disabled and disabled functions removed
brew linkdoes not permit force-linking system dependencies on macOS 10.14 Mojave/CLT 10 and instead outputs the correct compiler flags to use
HOMEBREW_PREFIXcan no longer be in Homebrew’s temporary directory
brew lsno longer accepts all
Other changes since 1.6.0 I’d like to highlight are the following:
- Homebrew now uses Ruby 2.3.7 (like macOS High Sierra 10.13.6)
- macOS 10.14 Mojave currently requires the CLT header package (until we have more communication with Apple)
reinstallnow have a
--display-timesoption to print the install time for each formula
brew linkagenow uses a cache to dramatically speed up the command
- Unspecified but opportunistic linked dependencies are now stored on formula installation and used to correctly generate the list of dependencies for an installed formula
- Downloading Homebrew’s portable Ruby also respects the
- The brew.sh websites all look better on mobiles
- You can now subscribe to this Homebrew Blog by email on TinyLetter
- Homebrew still accepts donations through Patreon. If you can afford it, please consider donating. If you’d rather not use Patreon we’ve updated the README on how to make single donations through PayPal, cheque or wire transfer.
Thanks to all our hard-working maintainers, contributors, sponsors and supporters for getting us this far. Enjoy using Homebrew!
