Purp is an acronym for Pugo-RPM, and it's a tool for managing RPM-packages. Purp uses the ncurses-library which means that it's textbased, and therefore can be used on most kinds of terminals. Purp provides a fast and efficient way to navigate, install, upgrade, and uninstall RPM-packages on ordinary text-terminal devices.

Release Notes: Purp now works fine with RPM 4, i.e. RedHat 7. This version should also be more stable. Several parts of the code have been reviewed and debugged.

Release Notes: The major reason for this version is that a very silly bug that caused a segfault when entering a RPM-path without a "/" at the end is fixed.
Release Notes: This version contains fixes for some serious bugs that caused Purp to segfault after installing many big packages. This should make Purp much more stable. Everyone running version 0.9.0 should upgrade to this version.
