Release of GSRC 2014.10.11

I'm happy to announce the 2014.10.11 release of GSRC, the GNU Source Release Collection. GSRC is a convenient means to fetch, build and install the latest GNU software from source via a BSD Ports-like system. Installing a package is as simple as

$ make -C gnu/hello install

You can find more information and the documentation at the GSRC website.

This release is a snapshot of the state of released GNU software at this time. You can download this release at http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gsrc or, you can download it from the nearest mirror.

Of course, to stay up-to-date with the latest package releases in-between releases of GSRC, you may choose instead to checkout the bzr repository:

$ bzr checkout bzr://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/gsrc/trunk/ gsrc

And keep up-to-date with the latest releases:

$ bzr update

If you encounter any problems with a build script, please let me know at bug-gsrc@gnu.org.

NEWS

  • Changes to the GSRC system
    • Bugfix: Uninstallation of packages without info files. GSRC will no longer try to remove info files if they aren't installed. This would prevent the uninstallation procedure from completing.
    • Bugfix: Trailing whitespace from relevant package metadata is stripped. Trailing whitespace on the GARNAME, GARPROFILE, and GARVERSION variables is explicitly stripped to prevent bugs when the shell tries to operate on path names derived from some combination of their values.
  • Changes in GSRC packages
    • 2 packages have been added to GSRC since the last release
    • 49 packages have been updated since the last release
    • Coverage statistics (Note: the totals include packages that will not be implemented in GSRC, such as retired packages, which are counted as completed. Broken builds are counted as incomplete. Some packages have not yet made any releases, which are also counted as incomplete. See TODO for more information.)
