Maybe add a Changelog in the repo and maintain it?
Option #2 is OK but it can cause pain when testing -- upon each fresh
installation from ISO we would get that message and it might break some
tests though that is fixable. Option #3 is OK too. #1 is worst and I
wouldn't do it.
Or maybe display that info when showing all the commands (typing 'fuel'
or 'fuel -h')? We already have a deprecation warning there concerning
client/config.yaml, it is not very disturbing and shouldn't break any
currently used automation scripts.

However, the next major release will bring users the fresh CLI that won’t be compatible with the old one and the new, actually usable IRL API library that also will be different.

That does not look very user friendly, because users will have to run all commands with --quiet for the whole release cycle to mute deprecation warnings.
