FarCry 7.1.1 released

On the whole a nice bit of house keeping. Definitely worth the upgrade. On the other hand, if you are getting into the whole devops caper for your deployments, the introduction of ENV configuration is a must!

Note, this is now the HEAD of the master branch. We track the latest official release on this branch at all times.

If you’re not brave enough to move to 7.1 (why not!) then you might think of upgrading to 7.0.10 instead.

Quite like this one for identifying crufty tables that need to burn in a fire – of course some of these could be legitimate tables for your app, they’re just not used by the FarCry Core framework :wink:

This subtle @blair change has moved us to an “object brokerise all things” state – which is a wondrous thing :goat:
