This release is primarily focused on the contributor experience, which means most of the development isn't user-facing. Historically, pull requests always failed the build, even when they were perfectly valid, due to significant tech debt in the CI configuration. I've moved mountebank to CircleCI as the primary CI server to better visualize the workflow and made the PR verifications much simpler.
This release also adds support for node v10 (some SMTP libraries had to change), and removes support for node v4.

Windows path limitations
*mountebank wishes very much for your Windows experience to be hassle-free, but he is simply not qualified to address a particular constraint of Windows Explorer. For legacy reasons, some Windows applications, including most notably Windows Explorer, have a maximum number of characters allowed in a path of 260 characters. As mountebank writes these words, the longest path he includes in the zip files is around 175 characters. The zip file name, which is likely to represent itself as two nested directories if you use the defaults to unzip it, will be around 25 characters. That gives you very little wiggle room. If you unzip the file in your users directory, you may very likely get an error because of this constraint.
The following solutions will all work:
- Unzip to the root of your C: drive (or a similar small path)
- Use 7zip to unzip the file instead of Windows Explorer
