New in version 0.9.1
August 30th, 2013
- Filenames are no longer URI escaped.
New in version 0.9.0 (August 14th, 2013)
- This version creates source packages, then binary packages from those source packages.
- In effect, wpkg has become an advanced build system.
New in version 0.8.1 (July 1st, 2013)
- This version patched problems where --fsys-tarfile would crash the tool with files over 64Kb, and where the control.info feature was not working because of an inverted test.
- Support for filenames and symbolic links of any length was added, avoiding the 155 + 100 limitation of the tar format.
- A few small bugs were fixed.
New in version 0.7.2 (February 26th, 2013)
- This version fixes several bugs in the compression/decompression code.
- Large packages or packages with the "wrong" size would break because of return code mishandling.
- A deconfiguration prerm script is run and the status is set as expected ("Unpackged"). Several fixes have been made to the libexpr library.
- This release is made using the libraries available as DLL/.so so one can use them in their software as such instead of using the archives.
- It fixes handling of many fields in the control file.
- You are strongly encouraged to upgrade if you were using 0.7.1 or older.
New in version 0.7.1 (December 13th, 2012)
- This version fixed bz2 compression and ar creation for large packages.
- The memfile maximum size is now 1Gb instead of 128Mb.
- A check was added for empty ar filenames.
- The lzma and xz tests were fixed so that such files can be added to data.tar.gz.
- Many dependency tests were fixed.
- --output-dir and --output-filename options were added for --install.
- Pre-configurations are now done as expected.
- --root was fixed so that a full path is always used.
- Several --remove bugs were fixed.
- Several installation definitions in CMakeLists.txt were fixed.
New in version 0.7.0 (November 22nd, 2012)
- This could nearly be a 1.0 version since it is mostly complete (wpkg is very much equivalent to dpkg now, except for dselect capabilities which the authors do not intend to include in wpkg, anyway).
- This version does not depend on boost at all (all the dependencies (zlib and bz2) are included in the source package and linked as one tool without any DLL dependencies).
