Release Notes: Support for versions of RPM prior to 4.0.3 has been dropped. Perl 5.6.0 or newer is also required. Several potential segfaults were eliminated.
Release Notes: Several more interpreter-level warnings were eliminated, two memory leaks were plugged, and some significant speed-ups were made in the database code and in the lookup of system constants.
Release Notes: This release fixes some memory leakage and traps a bug that would occur with newer versions of RPM 4.0. Also, some conditions could cause Perl to try to auto-vivify the hash structures, which could trigger badly-formed calls into the RPM API. These were addressed.
Release Notes: A lot of code clean-up has occurred as a result of some talk on the direction of Perl 5.7 internals. Most importantly, there is a fix for a bug in the RPM::Database class that caused it to hold on to a lock on the rpm database even after object destruction.
Release Notes: A small fix in the RPM::Header code for those building this module with a thread-enabled Perl. The main improvement is that the generated Makefile can now create RPMs and SRPMs, which are now available for download from the project's homepage.
Release Notes: This release is only to provide compatibility with RPM 4.0 and the recent release of Red Hat Linux 7; no functionality has been added. Users who have installed RHL 7 or who have upgraded to RPM 4.0 manually will need this version, as prior releases will not work in this environment.
Release Notes: This version fixes problems with the class constructors, and contains updated documentation.
Release Notes: More documentation in RPM::Constants, some new methods in RPM::Header, some optional importable identifiers in RPM::Database, and a change in the way data is returned from a RPM::Header object (people who have scripts using this class should note the change in syntax).
Release Notes: This is a low-impact release so that all current work on RPM::Header is on CPAN prior to integrating package and transaction classes.
Release Notes: A core-dumping bug in the RPM::Header code has been fixed, and more of the unused constants trimmed from RPM::Constants. Also, more of the values in RPM::Constants have been documented. The currently implemented modules are now close to stable.
