After seven months of comprehensive development, I’ve today branched RPM 5.0 in the rpm5.org CVS repository, rolled RPM 5.0.0 release tarball and announced the availability of this brand-new RPM version with an official press release.
I’m very happy about the recent evolution of RPM, as it especially provides our OpenPKG a lot new possibilities. Since a few weeks we also have the forthcoming and announced OpenPKG Framework already upgraded to this brand-new ackaging solution. We are still busy in providing a totally smooth upgrade path for today’s OpenPKG-CURRENT, but the OpenPKG community can expect the new RPM 5 based OpenPKG Framework to be available from openpkg.org for public testing soon, too. OpenPKG will be one of the first full-size Unix software distributions driven by the new RPM 5.
Read the RPM 5 press release for more details, please.
