Release Notes: This release makes the find command comply with POSIX in spackcook, prevents spackadd from yelling when looking for short a -(bad) package name containing slashes, and ditches the code providing the backward compatibility with the now almost-three-years-old branch 2 of the project.
Release Notes: This release improves the way spackcook guesses the different fields of the package name, and sorts the file list stored by spackadd in the package log.
Release Notes: Spacklist can list and display the installed post-install scripts. Several bugs were also fixed in spackadd and spackcook, which no longer set any defaults for the CC flags in order to prevent breakages on non-x86 platforms.
Release Notes: This release fixes two little bugs. The first caused spackedit to fail when a package was given with a relative path. The other caused spackfind to not match the absolute paths when "^" was omitted in the beginning of the requests.
Release Notes: This release makes spackadd use the ldconfig command of the root it installs the package in. It also improves the portability of the cleaning routine in spackcook and fixes several insidious bugs in this command.
Release Notes: The spackedit command was added to provide facilities to fix or tweak a package without having to always rebuild it from scratch. The Slackware compatibility mode switch was also implemented in spackpkg, and some tiny bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release allows the user (through the configure script) to define arbitrary paths for the directories related to package management. It also fixes a little bug in spackcook which caused the about.txt/slack-desc installed by make.sh to be overwritten.
Release Notes: The spacktidy UI and code were revised and slightly improved, and the related documentation was fixed. Moreover, it can now perform case insensitive searches when the new "MATCHCASE" option is set to 0. The spackcook command's --recipe option was improved.
Release Notes: This release slightly improves the code and the UI of spacklist. It also makes spackcook correctly manage the xzipped sources, and make spackrm properly handle the patterns containing characters that have special meaning for a regular expression.
Release Notes: This release replaces the "fmt" command used in spackdesc by POSIX awk, provides a better UI for this command, and make it generate totally Slackware-like output. It also more properly centralizes the spack-related configuration files into the "<sysconfdir>/spack" sub-directory.
