Nikola v5 Released

A new ver­sion of Niko­la is out! You can get it at the usu­al place.

This ver­sion is not com­plete­ly back­wards com­pat­i­ble, thus the new ma­jor ver­sion num­ber, but switch­ing to it should be easy-ish. If you are us­ing ver­sion 4.0.3:

  1. Re­­move your do­­

  2. Use niko­la build in­stead of doit from now on

  3. use niko­la serve in­stead of doit serve, niko­la new_­post in­stead of doit new_­post, and so on. Some oth­er doit task are al­so con­vert­ed in­to niko­la com­mand you can get the list us­ing niko­la help

The in­te­gra­tion of doit in­to Niko­la is not done in a very nice way, that's still on­go­ing work, but it should be Good Enough To Work (T­M).

Hope you en­joy this re­lease!
