Flycheck now has a Code of Conduct which defines the acceptable behaviour and the moderation guidelines for the Flycheck community. [GH-819]

Flycheck also provides a Gitter channel now for questions and discussions about development. [GH-820]

The native Texinfo manual is again replaced with a Sphinx based documentation. We hope that this change makes the manual easier to edit and to maintain and more welcoming for new contributors. The downside is that we can not longer include a Info manual in Flycheck’s MELPA packages.

From this release onward Flycheck will use a single continuously increasing version number. Breaking changes may occur at any point.
