XBPS 0.51 is out

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.51. This is a minor release that contains bugfixes:

  • zsh completion: added -U/--unpack-only support for xbps-install(1).

  • libxbps: initialize locale to be able to unpack UTF-8 encoded packages files correctly with the musl C library.

  • alternatives: preserve current order while updating packages.

  • alternatives: always create the directory where the symlink is stored, in case this does not exist yet.

  • libxbps: another bugfix for conflicts: do not take into account packages that are on hold mode.

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