XBPS 0.43 is out
A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.43. This is a minor release that contains some bugfixes.
>=1.1.0 is now a supported compiler.
xbps.d(5): the virtualpkg keyword now accepts pkgnames in the first component, to match any virtual package version. Example:
would match any version of the virtual package `foo` to be resolved as `bar`.
libxbps: when resolving virtual packages in repositories, make sure to initialize pkgdb to match any virtualpkg declared there. Regression introduced in 0.42.
configure: build with
-fstack-protector-strongif supported by the compiler, and fallback to
packaged-withstring obj is removed from pkgdb. Since 0.42 that object is unnecessary and is being obsoleted.
libfetch: fix races in the cache connection code.

We also want to give you best wishes for the upcoming year! Happy new year 2015!
