This week's qutebrowser updates

Another week - another update mail! 2 months, 1 week and 1 day left
until the day where I really want to release v0.1 - one year after the
first commit.

I finally took the time to convert the TODO/BUGS files into github

Sorry if anyone was flooded with mails because of that... I didn't
realize people get a mail for every issue when they're watching a repo
on Github :D

Also, the multiwindow branch was merged, so qutebrowser now supports
opening multiple windows in one instance.


Excluding merges, 2 authors have pushed 79 commits to master and 84
commits to all branches. On master, 79 files have changed and there
have been 1,879 additions and 1,385 deletions.

1 Pull request merged by 1 person

Upgrade notes

Some files got moved to a more correct place. You should execute this
before upgrading if you want to preserve your command history and
window geometry (untested :P):

$ mv ~/.config/qutebrowser/cmd_history ~/.local/share/qutebrowser/cmd-history
$ mv ~/.config/qutebrowser/state ~/.local/share/qutebrowser

Alternatively, just upgrade and delete these files.

To get the new keybindings, delete your

Also don't forget to run scripts/ to update your help
