Pickles 2.7 - Comments are optional

Earlier today, I released version 2.7 of Pickles. One of the features introduced in version 2.6 of Pickles in April was the inclusion of #-style comments in the living documentation. The reaction to that feature was mixed: people liked the ability to include #-style comments in principle, but some people would like to decide whether to include them for themselves.

Version 2.7 of Pickles now offers that ability, thanks to the work of William C. Smith. In the command line version of Pickles, you can use the enableComments argument to control inclusion of #-style comments. The default value is true, so if you do nothing, the #-style comments will be included as in version 2.6. See the documentation for the other runners.

Happy Pickling!
