I cleaned up the code pretty extensively, rewriting some of the biggest modules, added a few cool features and fixed a bunch of bugs. Some of the nice features are: support for gopher repositories and support for LZMA packages. ... If you are already a happy fdnpkg user (and using the v0.94), you can make it update itself via the command 'fdnpkg update fdnpkg'. The main website of FDNPKG has changed, now it's hosted at sourceforge"
Mateusz adds: "I'd like also to use this occasion to call for volunteers. Any package management system is useless without actual packages, and it's really hard for me to both develop/test/maintain FDNPKG and do packaging for it. If you are finding fdnpkg useful, know how to handle a zip archiver, and have some spare time, please consider giving a hand to FreeDOS by contributing packages. To dump the current list of available packages, one could use 'fdnpkg vsearch'. Not only core FreeDOS programs/tools are concerned, but any DOS program/game that is a) useful and b) compliant with the open-source/libre principles."
