Unison 2021 year in review
2021 was a big year for Unison. We released a new alpha version roughly every other month, and each release came with some serious improvements. In total, we merged more than 600 pull requests, 48 of which were from the open-source community.
Here are some of the highlights.
A beautiful GUI for browsing the Unison codebase
Since a Unison codebase is not stored in text files, it's been a sticking point for developers that they haven't been able to easily browse their code and post it online for others to see. So this summer we rolled out a new user interface for browsing the Unison codebase through a web browser. This comes embedded in the Codebase Manager, so now when you start up
ucm it also starts a local web server that lets you browse and search your code in a delightful way.
