XStow is a replacement for GNU Stow written in C++. It supports all features of Stow with some extensions. XStow and GNU Stow are programs for managing the installation of software packages. It keeps each package in its own directory while making it appear that all packages are installed in the same place. Unlike GNU Stow, XStow does not depend on Perl, and can be compiled statically for such uses as rescue disks. XStow is fully compatible with GNU Stow, meaning that you can switch from one to the other at will.
Release Notes: Some bugs in the configure script were fixed. This release will compile with gcc 4.8.
Release Notes: This release comes with many new features, bugfixes, and code cleanups. It shouldn't break compatibility with older versions.
Release Notes: Some compilation problems on Solaris and FreeBSD have been fixed. If you succeeded in compiling the previous version of xstow, there is no need for an upgrade.
Release Notes: This release has a new feature called "nignore support" which allows installing only specific directories. Some bugs were fixed. Creating smaller binaries for rescue systems is now easier.
Release Notes: The initial reason for releasing this new version was a bug that caused it to exit abnormally if the TERM variable was not set. Other things in the background as cleanups and typo fixes were done too.
