Release version 0.14.0

parent 3d55abea
Version 0.14.0
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Released: 2021-02-02
Notes:
* Component data-IDs gain a fifth part for a "branch". If you parse the IDs with AppStream's
functions, this change is fully backwards compatible. If you do your own parsing of these
IDs, please check if you have 4-part or 5-part IDs and split accordingly.
The branch is not used by AppStream (it is just passed through), but needed in GNOME Software
for Flatpak and Snappy support.
* AppStream-Generator depends on libappstream-compose now, however the API is still not stable, so
please do not use it unless you either are appstream-generator or like using experimental code.
