RPM 4.10 brings better consistency checking

Filed under

The RPM project has announced the availability of RPM 4.10.0, which includes great number of changes since the 4.9.x branch. The RPM package management tool was originally developed by Red Hat and is used by many Linux distributions including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise, PCLinuxOS and more.

One new feature in RPM 4.10 is its support for dpkg-style tilde notations in version tags. On systems where package management is provided by dpkg – like Debian and Ubuntu – the tilde character is used to append labels such as "beta" to packages without actually incrementing the version of the package.

Open source gives us complete transparency into that process. Read more
