This is a maintenance release to fix issues reported by users since
the last six months. As usual there is also some improvements and
* Add command line option --extra-function to apply formatting to
a user defined list of function like with PG internal functions.
* Add --no-rcfile / -X option to avoid loading user configuration
file. Thanks to Norbert Buchmueller for the patch.
* Add -i | --inplace command line option to override an input file
with the resulting formatted content.
* Add new command line option -L, --no-extra-line. By default an
empty line is added after the end of a statement when it is
terminated by a semi-colon except in a plpgsql code block.
If the extra empty line at end of the output is useless, you can
remove it by adding this option to the command line.
* Add option -C, --wrap-comment to enable comment wrapping. Used
to wrap comments at the length defined by -w or --wrap-limit
whatever is the part of the comment. Indent is not included in
the character count.
* Add Dockerfile that builds image with pgformatter.
