I was doing another release today, and I thought that doing a Baserock
release too wouldn't hurt, so here it is. Take this email as a release
announcement, or as a release notes review, that will depend on how
good they are and if nobody wants any changes:
# Baserock 16.13 is released!
## Definitions compatibility
The Baserock reference systems are defined using version 7 of
the definitions format. In 15.47, version 6 was used.
The baserock-16.13 tag of definitions can be built with Morph from 15.47.
The version of Morph in Baserock 16.13 can build definitions versions
7 and 8
For more information about these versions, see here:
