(Unofficial) JPM Changelog

As of this writing there has never been an official announcement or a changelog when a new version of JPM was released. As an add-on developer it’s pretty important to know when you have to update your tool, since many JPM releases contain crucial bug fixes. I want to try and compile changelogs whenever a new version of JPM is released.

Updating JPM to the latest version
Run npm update -g to update to the latest version of JPM.

1.1.0 just came out with official changelog: https://github.com/mozilla-jetpack/jpm/releases/tag/1.1.0
Thanks @kumar303 for that :slight_smile:

Thanks for all your work on the unofficial changelog! I copied a bit of it over to our releases page. Going forward, it should be easy to generate changelogs automatically from commits because we’ll be enforcing semantic messages.
