Release Notes: This release was updated for compatibility with Slackware 12.1. A small bug in package name handling that prevented the kernel-headers package from being upgraded was fixed. This was corrected in slackpkg.conf.
Release Notes: This release has a new command line parser, and accepts almost all slackpkg.conf options directly from the command line. There is a new "batch" mode to do updates without human interaction. There is an updated mirrors file and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: The download in 'slackpkg update' is smarter and can check in ChangeLog.txt to see if something has changed since the last update. A new 'dialog' interface. You can see the differences between old and new configuration files before removing or overwriting them. install-new has been added to install packages created in the last Slackware development cycle. Blacklist can handle whole directories, and not just single filenames. Many minor bugfixes and small features.
Release Notes: The upgrade-all command was added to upgrade the whole system in the same order recomended by Slackware's UPGRADE.TXT. The clean-system command was added to remove all third party or obsolete packages from your machine. Many bugfixes were made, and the mirrors file was updated. The program is ready for the release of Slackware 10.2.
Release Notes: By popular demand, the "old-style" output format is back. Many bugs have been fixed in package lists generation. All slackpkg users need to upgrade to 1.03. All older versions can't work with the new FILELIST.TXT format and will give an empty list of packages. 1.03 can extend its functions with modules or user functions. There is a new manpage.
Release Notes: Totally new output messages. This release is much cleaner. It can search in /extra and /pasture. A new option is added: slackpkg info package-name will show you the package information and description.
Release Notes: The internal engine is completely rewritten, and a lot of code is split into functions. You can see the results of the new code when making "upgrade slackware"; the package list are created much more quickly. A new "download" function has been added, to only download the package. There are a few bugfixes in other functions.
Release Notes: This release features a new mirrors file with -9.1 and -current mirrors. The new "blacklist" function makes it much more easy to mark packages that shouldn't be installed, removed, or upgraded. Some minor changes were made in package searching and upgrading.
Release Notes: This release has a man page, md5sum checksums to detect corrupt packages, and the ability to make install/upgrade directly from a local mirror, like a hard disk or CD-ROM. Upgrading is highly recommended.
Release Notes: The mirrors have been changed to Slackware 9.0. The DELALL option now really deletes all files after an upgrade/install/reinstall. A lot of typos are fixed, and there are other minor changes.
