Version 2

This is the latest version of OverrideAudit, targeting Sublime Text 3.2+ (builds 3197 and later). As of version 2.3, OverrideAudit requires Sublime Text 4 build 4126+ in order to take advantage of new features available only in the newer versions of the software.

2.2.6 (2023-09-15)

  • Update documentation links to point to the new domain at which the documentation is hosted, as well as some support locations as well; these were not out of date per se, but were brought up to date with current link formats.
  • This release was made for ST3 and ST4 so that older versions can still access the documentation as they might expect.

2.2.5 (2022-06-06)

  • Update the hover popup that displays package information to make it clearer that the commands that are implemented in the Default package are available in all plugin hosts and not just the one that it natively runs in.
  • Include extra hover popups on different parts of the various reports that are available to help explain what is being seen, such as the different package types and the text that marks different types of overrides.
  • This is the last version of OverrideAudit that is targetted towards Sublime Text 3; all future versions will require Sublime Text 4 version 4126 or better.

2.2.4 (2021-10-12)

  • Fix an issue with the command that allows you to open any resource, which was not properly allowing for opening all resources. In particular, any override classified as Unknown (a file in a package with no corresponding file in the sublime-package file) was filtered from the list, making opening them impossible.

2.2.3 (2021-07-13)

  • Fix the version of Python displayed for the `User` package in builds of Sublime Text 4, where plugins in that package run in the new plugin host.
  • Fix commands in tab context menus generating errors because they were getting an `event` in situations they did not expect them in.

2.2.2 (2020-10-20)

  • When refreshing a report, put the cursor back at the top of the file so that moving doesn't cause the scroll to jump.
  • Fix an issue with diffing packages that aren't represented with a sublime-package file.
  • All reports now use a custom context menu so that the commands that only commands relevant to the report are displayed.
  • Reports can now optionally skip displaying overrides on files if they're overrides that are unchanged from the base file (such as when temporarily reverting overrides).
  • Fix a bug with context menu commands in windows where there was an HTML or Image sheet in place, which would make the commands choose the wrong tab and potentially generate errors.

2.2.1 (2020-02-26)

  • This fixes a bug in the new Open Resource command that would cause it to hide any packages that are not backed by a sublime-package file (such as the User package).

2.2.0 (2020-01-21)

  • Include a new Open Resource command that will allow you to browse for and open any package resource you like. This works like the PackageResourceViewer command of the same name, except that any resources that are represented by overrides are annotated in the panel.
  • The hover popup that appears on packages in OverrideAudit has an additional field for packages that contains plugins in the form of the version of Python that's used to execute the plugins in that package.
  • Fix an issue where some OverrideAudit commands would not reload themselves if the package was update without restarting Sublime.

2.1.1 (2019-11-05)

  • Fix an issue with the new mini_diff_underlying setting in which if an override was open when you quit Sublime and then you restart, the incremental diff indicators would not be set up correctly.

2.1.0 (2019-9-15)

  • Added new commands to create an override and promote a view opened by View Package File to an override. Both set up the tab so that saving the file for the first time will create the override; closing the tab before saving will abort.
  • Added a new command to revert an override back to the original file content; the new confirm_revert setting controls if you are asked to confirm the revert or not. Unlike deleting an override, the override content is irrevocably lost if you don't back it up first (e.g. in git).
  • Added a new setting mini_diff_underlying to have OverrideAudit set up the incremental diff functionality of Sublime while editing an override to track the unpacked version of the file instead of the version on disk.
  • Loose files in unpacked packages that don't correspond to files in their packed package equivalent can be displayed in the Override and Bulk Diff reports via the ignore_unknown_overrides setting.
  • Hovering the mouse over a package name in a report will display a package popup with information on that package, such as it's version and description and a click-able URL (for packages that define them). The popup also includes information on overrides in that package as well as some commands. This is still a WIP, so the layout and available commands are not fully fleshed out yet.
  • Fixed an issue where the temporary files created for external diffing might have a different line ending than the source file originally had.
  • Fixed an issue with the Bulk Diff Package context command in reports, which was not hiding itself when disabled. It is now also smarter about when it does enable itself.
  • Fix a bug in dependency package detection that caused it to only detect unpacked packages as a dependencies.

2.0.0 (2019-3-14)

  • The code has been refactored to make it easier to extend and add new commands. With the exception of the items outlined in the following points, everything works as it did before. If you had custom key bindings/menus/command palette entries, they may need to be updated.
  • Commands intended for use in context menus now have a customizable visibility state to allow for more control in custom menus. Where previously they would always hide themselves if they did not apply, now they instead disable themselves. The default context menus still hide the commands, however.
  • Default command captions for disabled commands are slightly different in cases where the contextual information that says what they would do is missing. For example, Diff Override instead of telling you what override might be diffed.
  • Slight visual tweaks to the Package Report to make it more visually pleasing.

Version 1

This is the original version of OverrideAudit, targeting Sublime Text 3 builds 3092 or later.

1.2.2 (2019-03-13)

  • This version is functionally identical to version 1.2.1 and exists to be the place holder for the last of the 1.x series versions of OverrideAudit. It can only be automatically installed by people using builds of Sublime Text 3 prior to build 3197; newer versions of Sublime will pick up version 2 instead.

1.2.1 (2019-02-15)

  • Support using Sublimerge Pro or Sublimerge 3 as the external diff tool by setting external_diff to "sublimerge".
  • Improve detection of an invalid external_diff setting that could lead to the command being enabled when it should not be.
  • Log to the console when the temporary files created during an external diff are removed.

1.2.0 (2019-02-10)

  • Implement the ability to open an override diff in an external diff tool via the external_diff setting. This command is available from the command palette and the context menu of override diff views.

1.1.2 (2019-01-21)

  • Fix a bug in the handling of the save_on_diff setting in which, in certain cases an override buffer tab might visually appear unsaved even though the contents were saved to disk properly.
  • Fix a bug introduced in 1.1.0 while fixing #24 in which text in reports telling you that there are no overrides would incorrectly be treated as override file names.
  • Improved detection of dependency packages that are under development, which use a different metadata file than installed dependencies do. (#25)
  • Replace the menu item in the preferences menu and the entry in the command palette that open the README file with a version that opens this online documentation instead.

1.1.1 (2017-05-01)

  • Remove a debug print statement that slipped through during some last minute code testing prior to the last release.

1.1.0 (2017-04-28)

  • Implement the ability to freshen a single expired override or all within a package (#15) via a context menu option.
  • Implement the ability to show the diff header even if a diff is empty (#18) controlled via diff_empty_hdr option
  • Fix a problem with overrides starting with a period not being correctly recognized as an override (#24)
  • Fix a file case issue on Windows/MacOS where opening an override from a package folder with an incorrect case would not enable the commands to edit or diff the override
  • Performance enhancements for some package operations for users with a large number of installed packages

1.0.1 (2017-04-10)

  • Fix mixed path separators in diff output, delete confirmations and diff tab headers so they are always forward slashes (unix-style) to visually conform with how Sublime represents package path fragments internally (#14)
  • The Package Report, Override Report and Bulk Diff Reports now have word wrap turned off by default
  • Enhanced the checks performed at file load and save so to more correctly determine if a file is actually an override or not when enabling integration with OverrideAudit Edit/Diff functionality
  • Rename the "Swap Diff/Override View" command to "Swap Diff/Edit View" in the command palette and change the associated text used in Diff tab titles
  • Add a configuration option save_on_diff (defaults to false) to control if the contents of an edited override should be persisted to disk before performing a diff on it.

1.0.0 (2017-04-3)

  • Initial release
