XBPS 0.47 is out

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.47. This is a minor release that contains two bugfixes:

  • When executing pkg configuration, override the umask with sane defaults. Otherwise files might be created with undesired permissions. Fixes #106

  • libxbps: when resuming a file transfer (.part file exists), check if the requested offset matches the remote file size, and if that’s true, just rename the file to finish it. The HTTP server might return a 413 return code to tell us that range is not satisfiable.

Please report issues at https://github.com/voidlinux/xbps/issues.
