fink-0.33.0 was released on 6 June, 2012. This release introduces some
Starting with this version of fink, packages will be built as an
unprivileged user by default, which prevents the build process from
installing files in the rest of the filesystem. (Prior to fink-0.33.0 we
relied on maintainers to test their packages using this method). Users
may find that some packages don't build in this mode, so we appreciate
feedback, as always, to help us find and correct problems.
In addition, we have added some additional options for maintainers in
this Fink version. /sw/Library/Python has been added to the list of
valid directories in a package, to provide a unified location to install
modules built against a built-in Python. There is now an xcode.app
virtual package for packages that use xcodebuild to BuildDepend upon.
Its version is the version of Xcode.app. The xcode virtual package has
always been based on the presence of the command-line tools, and now its
version is the version of those. Note that xcode and xcode.app are the
same for Xcodes prior to 4.3.
