Changelog for 1.4.0 version



1.4.0 - 2015-05-22
  - General changes/additions
    * add a aug_escape_name call to sanitize strings for use in path
      expressions. There are a few characters that are special in path
      expressions. This function makes it possible to have them all escaped
      so that the resulting string can be used in a path expression and is
      guaranteed to only match a node with exactly that name
    * paths generated by Augeas are now properly escaped so that, e.g., the
      strings returned by aug_match can always be fed to aug_get, even if
      they contain special characters
    * augtool: correctly record history when reading commands from a file
      and then switching to interactive mode (Robert Drake)
    * augtool: new command 'errors' that pretty-prints /augeas//error
      messages; improve the information provided with 'short iteration'
      errors

    * augtool: on interrupt (Ctrl-C), cancel current line instead of
      exiting (jeremy Lin)
