XBPS 0.53 released

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.53. This is a minor release that contains bugfixes and performance improvements:

  • xbps-rindex(1): fix possible stagedata deadlock. (@Gottox)

  • xbps-create(1): Allow file paths longer than 128 characters. (@Gottox)

  • libxbps: share workload more efficient between threads and avoid idling threads. (@Gottox)

  • xbps-rindex(1): By default xbps-rindex will not check hashes while cleaning. To enable the old behavior the user can supply the –hashcheck flag. (@Gottox)

This version also bumps the ABI version that should’ve happened with 0.52. Sorry for that.
