  • First successful build should always result in SUCCESS notifications (#105)
  • Handle missing macro implementations more gracefully (#106, #108)

Version 2.1.0 (Feb 7, 2017)

  • The $PRINT_FULL_ENV variable is no longer supported.

  • Several tokens that were possible to use in previous versions, are now deprecated and eventually will not be supported. To remain backwards compatible, the plugin still supports all the old tokens, but their replacement to the new tokens are recommended
