whenjobs 0.6 released

whenjobs 0.6 fixes two out of three bugs mentioned previously, and fixes the bug Joe found in whenjobs --daemon-start (et al).


  • You can set multiple variables atomically, using:
    whenjobs --set cat=sushi food=fish

    The effect is that when-clauses are reevaluated only after all the variables have changed, rather than after each change as before.

  • You can test the effect of setting variables, without setting them (or running jobs). The new --test option displays which jobs would run:
    $ whenjobs --test food=meat
  • whenjobs --daemon-{start,restart,status} now all work as expected
  • whenjobs --job-names lists job names of all loaded jobs, whether running or not.
