Assume VersionEye is monitoring a Gemfile for you on GitHub and now a new version of webmock was released. Your project on VersionEye maybe looks like this.
Webmock is marked red because version 1.20.3 is requested in the Gemfile, but the newest version is 1.20.4. Now let’s say, for what reason ever, you want to ignore version 1.20.4 of webmock. Maybe it includes a bug or it’s just not compatible with your current application. But VersionEye is checking your Gemfile every day and you receive every day an email with the information that your webmock is out-dated. And you know it and you are annoyed of the email!
In that case just click the little green “mute” icon on the left side in the row. That will mute the current version of the dependency and the row turns green!
Now you will not receive email notifications to that anymore. The “mute” mode will be reseted if the next newest version comes out. Let’s say version 1.20.5 of webmock comes out. In that case the row will be red again and you receive an email notification. Now you can update or mute again!
The mute feature even effects the project dependency badge. But keep in mind that the dependency badges are cached for 24 hours for performance reasons.
Let me know what you think about this new feature! Either here in the comments or on Twitter.
