XBPS 0.44 is out

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.44. This is a major release that contains new features, bugfixes and performance improvements.

Major highlights:

  • xbps-uunshare(8): new utility for xbps-src that uses Linux user namespaces to perform the container setup.

  • xbps-pkgdb(8): added a new mode to set in installed packages: repolock. If that mode is set with -m repo(un)lock, a package will only be updated if there’s an update in the same repository that was used for installing. This implements #77.

  • libxbps: globally check for unresolved reverse dependencies and shared libraries while installing/updating/removing packages.

And more… see the NEWS file for more details.
