Normally, today I receive gifts, priviledge (really ?) of being older 🙂 But I can also make gifts myself ! So after python-redfish 0.4 yesterday, I’m announcing the release of project-builder 0.14.3 today (and maybe more to come later this week !)
This project seems to have a quicker pace than MondoRescue, maybe due to the fact I’m using it daily, and that it’s now used by python-redfish, MondoRescue, and also FOSSology (WIP more on that later again). I realize I didn’t announced previous versions 0.14.1 last July, and 0.14.2 last January, but lots have been added since.
I’ve worked on this version to improve deb support (no arch pkg) and especially deb repositories (with GPG keys) as well as OpenSUSE GPG signed repositories as well. Previous versions brought support for latest distros (Fedora 25, Ubuntu 16.10 e.g.), robust build using Docker in addition to VMs or chroot VEs, fixes some issues around conf files analysis, improving rpm package name for smooth upgrade between test and stable versions, renaming temporary dirs for consistency, as well as moving the main conf file outside of /etc reserved for local modifications, … Changelogs have all the nasty details.
One of the task I’d like to make now is to move the conf file format to JSON, to benefit from existing libs to manage them, and make them even easier to deal with. That would allow some other improvements afterwards, but too early to talk about.
Oh, and BTW, we decided to also publish python-redfish 0.4.1 (with its packages made with project-builder.org to keep this article’s focus 😉 ) to fix a nasty error we made when pushing to pypi. Enjoy as well !
