Breaking changes

  • Fixed a bug in fetch_player_stats_afltables where NULL date was defaulting to 1897 instead of current season like other fetch_* functions (#175). This is breaking behaviour to previous versions so will bump the version number but it should be an expected change to make the argument consistent with others

Second 2022 AFLW Season is now returned

  • Having two seasons from the same year was preventing users from accessing the 2nd season. * This release fixes this issue. Any AFLW related function should now return both seasons, which is not ideal but the best I can think of without moving towards named seasons (#184)
