volo 0.2.1 released, using volo as a library

volo 0.2.1 has been released. This is a bug fix release, if you are using 0.2.0, you are encouraged to upgrade. Here is the list of fixes. To install:

    npm install -g volo

Also new: the ghvolo project. It shows how to use volo as a library to just resolve dependency IDs to github-hosted resources. This is useful if you are building a command line interface for fetching front end dependencies and you want to use the same github resolution logic as volo, but without using volo to do the actual installation of dependencies.

ghvolo is a command line tool that supports "search" and "resolve". Nothing is installed by using ghvolo. It just uses volo as library to resolve IDs to some JSON data. See the README for more information and some sample commands.

The second sentence of any blog post about TechnologyCodeName should always explain what TechnologyCodeName is. You are the marketing department for volo, you don't know who will come across your blog post, and you never get a second chance to make a first impression. It's good to develop a snappy one-sentence description, no human will mind the repetition and it teaches search engines what volo is.

A sorry, I meant to hyperlink "volo" so that it would go to a page explaining it. Here is the link for anyone else coming across this post:
