History

v1.0.0

  • upgrades dependencies to take advantage of improvements to load-helpers and helper-cache. There shouldn't be any breaking changes here, so if you experience regressions please do not hesitate to create an issue.

v0.2.0

  • adds support for passing helper groups as a function. For example, the log helper can be a function, but it can also have log.warning and log.info functions as properties.
