[ANN] sbopkg 0.36.0 is released


Announcing a new release of the SlackBuilds.org package browser.

Not a whole lot in this one, but the download-only and '-ri' and NICE options are, well, nice, and if you're afraid to edit the config files, this one's ready to use with your brand-spanking-new Slackware 14.

Link to full announcement

Forgot the url in the email - mighty helpful, those are.

Thanks everybody - glad you're enjoying it.

[Copied from an email sent to the sbopkg/SBo lists:]

Because it wasn't a change in sbopkg itself, I forgot to include a note
in the NEWS file about the new REQUIRES line in the .info file. Sbopkg
has long provided the ability to use queuefiles and that doesn't change,
so users are free to generate queues using the new .info info. Perhaps
the gitorious queuefile repo will make use of this. Sbopkg has also long
provided access to both the README and the .info files either from the
command line or the dialog UI. Unfortunately, at least for now, the user
will have to start using that capability of looking at the .info file in
addition to the README to get all the information since the dependency
data has been removed from the README.

Thanks to elesmod in #sbopkg for reminding me of this.

Was just a noob asking a question

(And thanks to alisonken1home, who quickly figured out what has happened before slakmagik had a chance to answer.)

Thank you.

When viewing the queue, since it shows the installed version, consider showing the newer version as well. If one of the packages would be downgraded, it's impossible to tell on that screen.

Could you please remove the 'clear' from line 4440?

Agreed. I've always managed my slackbuilds manually; today I decided to try sbopkg. Sbopkg is an amazing utility. Many thanks!!

OK, upgraded here. Except you modified some keyboard shortcuts, and now I can't build a package using the left hand only on the keyboard with "B" for "Build". I also have to use the right hand to activate "P" for "Process".
