XBPS 0.32 is out

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.32. This is a bugfix release that also implements two phase package removal (among other things):

Release notes:

  • Fixed a bug in xbps_pkgpattern_name() where a string with some special chars would result in a crash (reported by Gottox).

  • Do the package removal in two phases: the first phase checks the user has write permission to the entries being removed, if this succeeds then the package removal is performed.

  • xbps-remove(8): -O now also remove obsolete pkg signatures from cachedir, and ignores pkgs of other architectures.

  • xbps-rindex(8): set correct permissions to the POSIX semaphore by clearing file permission bits before its creation.
