  •  18 Jan 2014 04:43

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

    •  17 Dec 2013 03:10

      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 14:13

        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 23:27

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

          •  05 Apr 2013 22:27

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

            •  23 Oct 2010 10:32

              Release Notes: This release fixes a problem when detecting which version of GnuPG is installed and working that, in some very specific situations, could lead to spurious "signature verification failed" errors.

              •  06 Jun 2010 16:36

                Release Notes: This release removes the pb-search (also know as remote-search) operation due to the Slackware Package Browser being dead for months. In addition, the program now has a rewritten help system.

                •  04 May 2010 02:37

                  Release Notes: This release fixes an issue introduced in version 36 that made the program ask the user about files that had supposedly disappeared when in fact they were still present in other packages.

                  •  25 Dec 2009 21:30

                    Release Notes: This release reduces the number of disk synchronization operations in order to greatly improve performance for barrier-enabled file systems.

                    •  27 Oct 2009 20:51

                      Release Notes: This release reviews the list of previous .new files more exhaustively on package removals in an attempt to prevent false positives triggered by configuration files that have stopped having the .new extension.
