Recent releases

  •  17 Jan 2014 20:12

    Release Notes: This release restores duplicate package filtering for the "info" operation, which otherwise failed in some situations.

    •  16 Dec 2013 18:44

      Release Notes: This release removes an anti-feature that filtered theoretically duplicate packages during the install operation, preventing some packages in third-party mirrors from being selected and installed by the user.

      •  16 Jun 2013 09:54

        Release Notes: This version fixes some documentation bugs and adds an option to get a shell to run arbitrary commands after kernel-related operations without exiting the program (similar to stopping the program with Ctrl+Z). In addition, while the program is still published to the public domain, the approach has changed from a mere public domain note to CC0, as recommended by the FSF and others, in order to increase legal safety.

        •  12 May 2013 19:41

          Release Notes: This release adds support for external repositories through the "add-repo", "list-repos", and "remove-repo" operations.

          •  05 Apr 2013 16:20

            Release Notes: This release fixes a small bug which prevented the program from finding all .new files introduced by installed packages.
