This is the CHANGELOG for the Carbs Packaging Tools, initially a customized fork of the kiss package manager. The format is based on Keep a Changelog, and this project somewhat adheres to Semantic Versioning.

6.0.1 - 2021-04-05

Fixed

  • Fixed inconsistencies of the Ctrl+C interrupt behaviour

6.0.0 - 2021-04-03

Added

  • Added unit tests using shellspec.
  • Added support for pax for tarball extraction.
  • ssu support has been added for privilege escalation.
  • Added -p flag for specifying package when using cpt-link.
  • Added manual pages for all cpt-contrib scripts.
  • Added lz compression/decompression support to $CPT_COMPRESS.

Changed

  • Moved cpt-lib to cpt-lib.in.
  • All src scripts now exit with success after being called with --help.
  • Minor optimisations on contrib scripts.
  • Huge speed improvement on cpt-export.
  • Updated the getoptions library to version 2.5.0.

Fixed

  • Fixed cpt-cat not using the CPT_ROOT value.
  • Fixed an error with the usage of sbase grep that resulted in exit when removing packages.

Removed

  • Removed C binaries cpt-readlink and cpt-stat and instead replaced them with _readlink() and _stat() library functions.

5.1.2 - 2021-01-04

Fixed

  • Fixed the Makefile installing files other than cpt-* files.
  • Fixed pkg_swap() bug where swapping a prefix file would change the following file locations on the manifest as well.

5.1.1 - 2020-12-20

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where the package build is continued even when it failed when $CPT_DEBUG was set

5.1.0 - 2020-11-25

IMPORTANT

  • The pkg_fixdeps() function has been renamed to pkg_fix_deps().
  • cpt-lib now parses options for you if parser_definition() is defined before being called.

Changed

  • cpt-fork can now take full path for packages.
  • cpt-size can now display the total size of multiple packages.
  • Updated getoptions() parser to version 2.0.1
  • Added git to the default cpt-base.
  • Temporary cache creation scheme is changed from build-$pid/ to proc/$pid/build/

Fixed

  • Moved option parsing to cpt-lib if parser_definition exists. This shouldn't affect existing scripts where cpt-lib is called before the parser is defined.

5.0.0 - 2020-10-06

IMPORTANT

  • cpt-fetch has been removed. cpt-update -o can be used instead.

Added

  • Added an /etc/cpt-base file to define a base. It can be used in order to ship a default base, but to make it redefinable by the user. This file isn't installed by default, it serves as a template.
  • Added cpt-orphans to view orphaned packages. This tool uses /etc/cpt-base and doesn't output any packages in the defined base.
  • Added a global_options() function in order to add into the option parser.
  • Added cpt-update -o flag to replace the functionality of cpt-fetch.
  • Added cpt-list -c to use the current directory as the argument string.

Changed

  • pkg_build() now notifies the user if the build file was modified inside a hook (the pre-build hook to be precise).
  • In git repository sources, @ can now be used to specify tags. E.g. git+git://git.carbslinux.org/cpt@4.2.0
  • cpt-fork now removes manifest and etcsums files.
  • cpt-fork can now be used to fork multiple packages.
  • cpt-reset now uses /etc/cpt-base when removing packages.
  • cpt-build now exports the CPT_TEST variable, so some tests that can't be done in a test script can be done from the build itself.

4.1.1 - 2020-09-25

Changed

  • Git clones now fetch tags if commits are specified. This makes the operation longer, but not as long as cloning the whole repository while building a package.
  • pkg_fixdeps() now outputs to stderr instead of /dev/tty. You can now have fully silent builds.

Fixed

  • Fixed the as_root() function when using su.

4.1.0 - 2020-09-11

Added

  • Added bi action to cpt for building and installing packages at the same time

Fixed

  • Fixed as_root() call on cpt-chbuild.

4.0.1 - 2020-09-10

Fixed

  • Fixed flags starting with --no-

4.0.0 - 2020-09-09

With this update, all the documentation was moved to the docs repository, which can be accessed from the following sources:

Added

  • Added the ability to test packages using a new executable file test.
  • Added $CPT_TEST variable for testing packages.
  • Added --test|-t option to build.
  • Added support for mercurial repositories.
  • Added options to install the tools "static" so they don't depend on cpt-lib.
  • Added basic unit tests. See make test.

Changed

  • Most contrib scripts now use the current directory as the package name.

Removed

  • Removed the docs/ folder.

Fixed

  • Fixed getoptions parsers while declaring initial variables.
  • Fixed build cpt-stat on the Makefile.

3.3.1 - 2020-08-31

Changed

  • Reverted sh256() to the previous way.

3.3.0 - 2020-08-31

Added

  • Added trap_set() in order to manage traps.

Changed

  • Moved from getopt to a shell implementation of option parsing. This ensures portability, and doesn't depend on a C program with GNU extensions. That was a mistake. The new implementation is taken from the public domain library, getoptions.
  • warn() function was modified to use log "$1" "$2" "${3:-WARNING}" instead.
  • Made cpt checksum method compatible with the KISS Community repository.

3.2.0 - 2020-08-22

Added

  • A .build.cpt file can be edited during the pre-build hook, so that a build script can be modified. If the build is modified, a diff file will be generated to the package database.
  • Some of the tools now use getopt. Since getopt isn't a POSIX utility, util-linux implementation has been added to the getopt-ul directory. It consists only of files required for the tool to be built.
  • Added pre-chroot hook for the cpt-chbuild utility.

Changed

  • cpt-chbuild now uses library functions such sh256(), and as_root().
  • cpt programs no longer exit if $CPT_PATH is unset.

3.1.1 - 2020-08-11

Changed

  • as_root() now sets package manager variables with env.

3.1.0 - 2020-08-07

Changed

  • cpt-lib no longer creates temporary directories. This will need manual adjustments for scripts that make use of the cache directories. Those directories can now be created by calling the create_cache() function.
  • Dropping libtool's *.la library files from packages.

3.0.0 - 2020-07-24

This is the 3.0.0 release. This will make kiss (now renamed as cpt) a toolchain for package management rather than a single script program. The main functionality is moved into a lib.sh file which the tools will source. This comes with nice benefits such as:

  • Easier option parsing for each tool.
  • Easier to extend the package manager as it is only a library. It no longer requires dirty hacks to source the package manager functions and variables.
  • Clearer usage information is outputted, so the user doesn't have to delve into documents to see the syntax/options of a tool.

Added

  • $CPT_CACHE to change the cache directory.
  • Added a bunch of flags, here is a table:
Flag Function Added tool
--force Force removal/installation cpt-remove/cpt-install
--root Specify root directory lots of tools
--download Only download packages cpt-update
--no-fetch Do not fetch repositories before update cpt-update
--single Only show the first instance of a package cpt-search

Changed

  • Renamed all variables from KISS-* to CPT-*
  • Moved database to /var/db/cpt
  • Changed the code style and did some minor nitpicks for the C programs.

Removed

  • Removed the ability to control color output (for now).
  • Removed kiss-outdated and kiss-which.

2.3.0 - 2020-07-16

Added

  • Added KISS_FETCH to optionally disable repository fetches while performing a system update. You can now run KISS_FETCH=0 kiss u in order to update your system without syncing repositories.

Changed

  • Changed usage outputs for kiss and contrib utilities.
  • rsync repositories are now synced based on checksums rather than timestamps.
  • kiss-chroot now uses system flags if available.
  • kiss-chbuild now installs extra packages if specified.
  • hooks now default to null if no arguments are given
  • *-pull hooks have been renamed to *-fetch and is run only once instead of for every single git repository.

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where using su to install packages resulted in a wrong package ownership.

2.2.1 - 2020-06-11

Fixed

  • Fixed directory checking on package removal

2.2.0 - 2020-06-10

Added

  • Makefile configurations were moved to config.mk.

Changed

  • kiss no longer ignores musl and gcc on fixdeps(). This will result in an influx of musl dependencies. But you will be needing the C library to be installed anyway if you want your programs to work. If your program links to libgcc, you will need the gcc package for that given program to function.
  • Makefile now properly accepts LIBS, LDFLAGS, and CFLAGS.
  • Updated documentation.

Fixed

  • C89 compatibility on C programs.
  • Fixed an alternatives issue where a file containing special regular expression characters (such as /usr/bin/[) would result in a manifest deletion.

2.1.2 - 2020-06-03

Fixed

  • Fixed a segmentation fault on kiss-stat when a file didn't have on owner on the passwd database.

2.1.1 - 2020-06-03

Fixed

  • Fixed 'No message in queue' message being outputted for every single package.
  • Fixed CFLAGS for x86_64 on kiss-chroot.
  • Fixed setting binary packages as dependencies.

2.1.0 - 2020-05-29

Added

  • Added '$2' '$3' for build scripts which specifies version and architecture information.

Changed

  • kiss-chroot now sets architecture based on the system
  • Updated documentation

Removed

  • Removed strip messages

2.0.0 - 2020-05-28

Added

  • Rsync repository support.
  • pre/post hooks for package removal (pre-remove, post-remove).
  • pre/post hooks for git pulls (pre-pull, post-pull).

Changed

  • kiss no longer removes empty directories if they are defined on a different package.
  • $KISS_NOPROMPT has been renamed to $KISS_PROMPT and must be set to 0 in order to disable prompts.
  • kiss-chbuild now checks tarball digest.
  • kiss-chbuild now downloads tarballs according to arch (x86_64 or i686 currently).
  • Submodule repository fetching has been modified to match compatibility.

Removed

  • Removed kiss-maintainer and moved it to kiss-extra

1.22.4 - 2020-05-26

NOTE: 1.22.x is the last minor version before 2.0.0, meaning I will not be doing any releases except for patches and fixes. My attention is now on implementing binary repositories. I will be doing some 'release candidates' before release, as binary repositories will need user feedback.

Added

  • Added new documents.
  • Added post-package hook.

Changed

  • Renamed the hashcheck function to sh256 for compatibility.
  • Enabled the usage of glob characters for kiss-bin.

1.22.3 - 2020-05-18

SECURITY

  • Fixed a bug regarding privilege escalation using $KISS_HOOK. kiss will now use $KISS_ROOT/etc/kiss-hook on installation operations (which are run by root) so that the hooks are defined by the system administrator rather than the user. See related proof-of-concept

1.22.2 - 2020-05-16

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where pkg_conflicts would abort if kiss-readlink failed due to missing components. It now fallbacks to the original directory name.

1.22.1 - 2020-05-15

REMOVED

  • Removed some contrib scripts and moved them to kiss-extra
  • kiss-cargo-urlgen
  • kiss-cargolock-urlgen
  • kiss-changelog
  • kiss-depends-finder
  • kiss-exec
  • kiss-message
  • kiss-orphans
  • kiss-reporevdepends

Fixed

  • Fixed a kiss-owns typo that caused it to fail.
  • Fixed a kiss-readlink bug where it would fail if the last component wouldn't exist.
  • Fixed an error on tarball extraction where a file name containing spaces would be parsed as two files.

1.22.0 - 2020-05-14

Added

  • Added kiss-exec, a tool to execute commands inside the alternatives system.

Changed

  • Replaced KISS_COLOUR with KISS_COLOR to match upstream.
  • Renamed colour variable to color for consistency.
  • The package manager no longer needs root privileges if the KISS_ROOT is writable by the user.
  • kiss now uses the host cache regardless of KISS_ROOT.

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where kiss-owns would output the wrong package because of symbolic links. The script now reads the link of the directory instead of the full file.

1.21.1 - 2020-05-14

Changed

  • All contrib messages now output usage information when called with --help and -h.
  • hashcheck function now uses $1 instead of ${file#\*}.

Fixed

  • Fixed a non-POSIX find call. Thanks to @illiliti.

1.21.0 - 2020-05-12

Added

  • Added a d|download option to acquire the sources of given packages. If no packages are given, it acquires the sources of outdated packages. This can be used to acquire a package's sources to build it later, or periodically downloading outdated package sources, so the user doesn't wait for the download when updating the system.
  • kiss now understands .txz tarballs. (BSD src.txz wink wink)
  • KISS_TMPDIR can now be used to specify a temporary build directory. This will be useful for those of you who would want to build on ram or a different file system.

Changed

  • Simplified tarball extraction method.
  • Removed the 'esc' function inside kiss.
  • Added a 'warn' function to standardise warnings inside kiss

Fixed

  • Removed the sys_db usage on pkg_find() where directories could clash with external utilities.

1.20.3 - 2020-05-09

Fixed

  • Fixed an alternatives bug caused by the previous patch, where the package moving to /var/db/kiss/choices would take the name of the preferred package.

1.20.2 - 2020-05-09

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue regarding manifest format when using pkg_swap (alternatives).

1.20.1 - 2020-05-08

Changed

  • Faster conflict resolution by using a conflict cache file.
  • Standardised kiss-readlink usage output.

1.20.0 - 2020-05-07

Added

  • KISS_NOPROMPT can be specified in order to skip prompts.

1.19.1 - 2020-05-07

Added

  • Added e|extension to kiss which can be used to output kiss-extensions.

Changed

  • kiss no longer outputs the extensions when called with kiss help. The output was too large for an average terminal, and a user had to scroll up for actual package manager options. These can now be retrieved with kiss e.
  • When called from a subshell, kiss disables colour escape sequences. This behaviour can be overridden by setting KISS_COLOUR environment variable. If set to 1, it will be enabled globally, if set to 0 it will be disabled globally.

1.19.0 - 2020-05-06

Added

  • Added kiss-reporevdepends for finding all the packages on the repository that depends on the specified package.

Changed

  • Removed the -p flag from tar while installing packages. busybox ignores it and we don't need it.
  • Replaced tar flags with keys for historical compatibility.
  • kiss now decompresses a tarball once and uses the decompressed tarball for listing and extraction.

Fixed

  • Fixed the output of doc-strings in contrib scripts.
  • kiss now ignores the binary programs in the repository for kiss extensions.

1.18.0 - 2020-05-04

Added

  • Added editorconfig file since we now have 4 languages (roff, Makefile, sh, C) in the repository.
  • Added kiss-readlink as a readlink -f replacement.
  • Added kiss-message for checking package messages.
  • Added this CHANGELOG

Changed

  • Made tar calls portable. kiss is no longer limited to busybox, bsdtar, or gnu tar!

Removed

  • Dropped the usage of readlink in kiss.

1.17.0 - 2020-05-03

Added

  • Added kiss-stat, a simple C program for getting the owner name of a file/directory.

Removed

  • Removed the usage of stat calls, as they are not standardised.

Changed

  • kiss now doesn't report Generating etcsums if there isn't an /etc directory in the package

Fixed

  • kiss now uses sys_db instead of pkg_db when removing packages from the system.
  • kiss now explicitly exits if prompt returns with a status of 1. This is for ksh compatibility.

1.16.3 - 2020-05-03

Fixed

  • Fixed etcsum location.

1.16.2 - 2020-05-03

Added

  • Added fallbacks for sha256sum. kiss now fallbacks to sha256, and openssl for hash checking, respectively.
  • Added kiss-changelog and kiss-which entries to the kiss-contrib.1 manual page.

Fixed

  • Fixed pkg_conflicts() getting stuck when you reinstall the same single package on a system.
  • Fixed pkg_conflicts() giving an error if no packages are installed on a system.

1.16.1 - 2020-05-01

Fixed

  • Fixed ksh Ctrl+C interrupt signals.

1.16.0 - 2020-05-01

Added

  • New message queue system implementation. If a package includes a file named message it will output its contents in a pretty way.
  • Added kiss-which, a tool like which but for kiss packages.
  • Added kiss-changelog, a tool for outputting the git log of a given package.

Fixed

  • Fixed colour outputting on OpenBSD ksh.
  • Made compatibility fixes on the Makefile
  • Fixed an installation issue where kiss would look for the manifest with the $KISS_ROOT variable

1.15.0 - 2020-04-30

I have decided to revert to rsync installation method as it is faster and safer. Now, rsync is not a huge dependency. Saving 500Kb is not worth it when you look at the trade-off.

REMOVED

  • Removed the new installation method.

Changed

  • Reverted to rsync for installation.
  • We are now forcing decompression to standard output while using decompress()
  • kiss now accepts decompressed tar archives for package installation as well.

1.14.2/1.14.3 - 2020-04-27

Fixed

  • The new installation method now complies to the $KISS_ROOT value.

1.14.1 - 2020-04-27

Removed

  • Removed the unnecessary [ -d ] from the path query.

Fixed

  • Fixed directory permissions in the new installation method.
  • Added support for $KISS_ROOT to the new installation method.

  • Whitespace cleanup.

1.14.0 - 2020-04-25

This release removes rsync from kiss and implements its own installation method.

Added

  • kiss now implements user scripts available in the $PATH. This can be used to call kiss manifest from kiss itself.
  • kiss now displays a warning if the user has a $KISS_ROOT that ends with a /.
  • kiss now uses its own new package installation method.

Removed

  • usage of rsync as an installation method.
  • usage of old_ifs

1.13.1 - 2020-04-19

Removed

  • Reverted and removed kiss ss changes.

1.13.0 - 2020-04-19

Added

  • kiss ss for outputting a single location for scripting.

Changed

  • kiss now elevates permissions during checksum if the file isn't owned by us.
  • Hide read error messages when version file cannot be found.
  • Made the pkg_fixdeps() usage of diff portable.

Fixed

  • Fixed a shellcheck error.

1.12.3 - 2020-04-17

Changed

  • Changed indentation style on decompression.

1.12.2 - 2020-04-15

Added

  • kiss can now decompress zip files.

Changed

  • checksum, build, install, and remove operations can now be done on the current package directory without arguments. So you can cd into a package an type kiss b to build that package.

Fixed

  • kiss-export now honours your KISS_COMPRESS value

1.12.1 - 2020-04-12

Fixed

  • Fixed printing empty arguments in kiss-outdated.

  • kiss-cat: a tool to concatenate package build files.
  • Manual page for kiss-contrib.

Changed

  • kiss-link can now take multiple file names and will create symbolic links of them all.
  • Simplified kiss-link

Fixed

  • kiss-cargo-urlgen: Fixed an issue where if a package version contained a '-' it could lead to wrong url generation.

1.9.0 - 1.11.2 - 2020-04-04

Added

  • kiss f to fetch repositories without an update prompt.
  • Support for submodules in the repository.
  • Added a Makefile to standardise the installation.
  • Zstd compression method.

Changed
