After a couple of month of refactoring, debugging, adding new features
and behaviours, the new pkgin is at the door !
Beginning in June, Bapt, from the FreeBSD `pkgng' fame, gave me some hints
he's been through in order to boost their package manager speed. Along
with many feedback i received by mail (thanks everyone), i've put it
together in order to provide nicer, improved code.
In a nutshell, here are the changes you may (or may not) notice:
. Made "yes" the default answer for install, remove, upgrade (request)
. Got rid of many useless lists loading (speed x10, literally)
. Introduced FULLPKGNAME as db member, speed ups searches
. unique_pkg(): no more "many versions of foo", pickup newer (request)
. Got rid of the annoying "stalled-behaviour" while downloading on some
. Imported progressmeter from OpenSSH (request)
. One struct to rule them all (Pkglist), eavily simplified code
. More flexible check_yesno()
. Database silent migration, you won't have to rm -rf /var/db/pkgin to
migrate to 0.5
Pkgin 0.5 has been tested on NetBSD 5.1/amd64 & i386, Openindiana,
DragonFly BSD 2.8, Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 and MINIX 3.1.8.
0.5 is available from pkgsrc-wip (wip/pkgin) and i'd like it to be well
tested before it makes its way to pkgsrc. The brave could also track
pkgin's CVS code, instructions are here: http://pkgin.net/
Please use pkgin-devel@... to submit PR, comments,
requests and patches, best way to keep track of pkgin user's adventures :)
