Latest updates

Ubuntu icon

Ubuntu 20.04 focal-proposed/main: Version 1.19.7ubuntu3 introduced

Mar 23
  • No-change rebuild for libgcc-s1 package name change.
Arch icon

Arch rolling community/os: Updated from 1.19.7-2 to 1.20.0-1

Mar 13
Debian icon

Debian experimental experimental/main: Version 1.20.0 introduced

Mar 08
Guillem Jover
  • libdpkg: Do not generate a backup file for the available database. Closes: #343578
  • perl: Switch Getopt::Long from bundling to bundling_values. This means the few scripts using Getopt::Long will stop accepting options in the form «-ab» for «-a -b», which is not future-proof, as it does not allow these options to get new arguments without making them abiguous.
  • dpkg-buildpackage: Remove transient backwards R³ compatibility code.
  • buildtools.mk: Add support for nostrip in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS when setting the STRIP variable.
  • dpkg-genbuildinfo: Do not include irrelevant packages in the Binary field.
  • dpkg: Do not clear selections for unknown packages. Closes: #927752
  • dpkg-shlibdeps: Add support for new Build-Depends-Packages, to be able to specify multiple packages. Closes: #926669
    Based on a patch by Frank Schaefer <>.
  • perl: Remove support for versioned GnuPG 2 program and packages.
  • libdpkg: Clarify lock contender error message. Print the PID of the lock contender, and add a warning explaining that removing the lock file is never the correct solution.
  • dpkg-genchanges, dpkg-mergechangelogs: Remove support for ~vola versioning, as volatile.debian.org was decommissioned some time ago.

    • Remove nfs methods, as there is nothing special about NFS, and mounting these should just be left to the local admin, who can mount any other remote filesystem too.
