pkgin 0.5.1 now available in pkgsrc
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hi fellow pkgsrc users,
I am pleased to announce the release of the newest pkgin branch to pkgsrc.
There have been many requests and many testers, thank you all !
Here are the main changes since 0.4:
. Don't download packages when repository is a file:// scheme
. Reduce verbosity when marking non-autoremovable packages
. Keep going if unmet requirements are encountered and warn about
it before proceeding
. Always move pkg_install on top of the "to-upgrade" list
. pkgin now depends on pkgsrc's pkg_install
. Log timestamp
. Better handling of pkg_install error logs
. rec_pkglist() now takes a va_list
. Added "requires" and "provides" to have a closer look on packages
. Globs can now be passed as an argument for package installation, i.e.
# pkgin in 'mysql-server<5.1'
. Export / import a list of packages as requested by wiz@
. Operations tracing flag (-t)
. Database silent migration
. More flexible check_yesno()
. Made pkgin in / rm yes by default
. One struct to rule them all (Pkglist)
. Got rid of many useless lists (speed x10, literally)
. Introduced FULLPKGNAME as db member, speed ups searches
. unique_pkg(): no more "many versions of foo", pickup newer
As the changelog says, the database format slightly changed, although
I've included a migration system, if you notice any inconsistency, simply
delete /var/db/pkgin and rebuild the database using pkgin up.
It has been successfully built and tested on NetBSD 5, DragonFly BSD 2.10,
OpenIndiana / Illumos 5.11, MINIX 3.1.8, Debian GNU/Linux 6 and Darwin/OS
pkgin 0.5.1 is available in pkgtools/pkgin, and as always, feedback and
reports are greatly appreciated.
