Artifact b59a8562e03418b37ba855d25c056597a676d284:



1.3.3.6 (2015-04-15)
  - Add an even more general update filter, which utilizes make scripts
    called `Packfile`. (Can be utilized for mid-packaging tweaks.)
  - Add mandatory `Source:` control field for DEB packages.
  - Guard absent documentation comment when reading -s src files.
  - Introduce brute force charset detection, assume UTF-8, else L1/ASCII.
  - Fix default file mode for write_changelog, and fix lintian bug with
    absent md5sum for stub changelog. Prepare parseable DEP-5 license list.
  - Introduce preprocessor filter utilizing preprocess.py.
  - Enhance -s src plugin with some relative target path inheritance.
    Absolute paths aren't modularizable yet. And be more precautious with
    comment syntax consistency.
  - Make -u fixperms ignore symlinks and chmod woes.
  - Composer target: strip VCS #hashversion suffixes. Reinstate RPM support
    with php-composer(vnd/pkg) serialization. Handle tilde, caret and
    asterisk specifiers more concretely. Downcase version suffixes for DEB.
    Add --composer-no-alt flag to avoid phar-|php- combinations.
  - Phar target: Add --phar-x flag for executable flag. Remove --phar-stub
    prefix path. Classmap building avoids chdir now, uses Canonic_Autoloader
    tokenizer implementation. Default attributes are better filtered.
  - Src plugin: retain invocation script as `main` file in attrs{}.

1.3.3.5 (2015-01-04)
  - Cleanup of composer plugin for more isolated multi-target creation,
    configurable --prefix, supports php+phar alternatives in dependencies.
  - More complete path cleanups for plugin chains.
  - Update filters -u and target -t options can now be repeated (multivalued
    alternatively to list specifiers).
  - Introduce --attr flag to add control fields (aliases to --deb-field).
  - Added filename lowercasing plugin.
  - Deprecated fpm options are now hidden in the help list, still available.

1.3.3.4 (2014-12-26)
  - Restructured staging/conversion step to separate flags and dependency
    resolution for multi-target building.
  - Composer module changed to match Debian/Fedora packaging guidelines.
    Prefixed vendor/ path is omitted, composer managebility averted.
    Dependency transformation still is somewhat rough.
  - Phar, Src, Exe, Composer module now use :attrs instead of [:meta].
  - Added backtrace output for generic error message.
  - Simple update filter added to "unprefix" input system packages.

1.3.3.3 (2014-12-22)
  - Added IPK / Listaller packaging target plugin.
  - Added Windows (EXE) installer generation.
  - Added PHP composer as source plugin.
  - Added source-based file packaging support (-t src plugin).
  - Added PHP phar archive generation plugin.
  - Introduction of multi-target building with -t rpm,deb,ipk.
  - Added -u update filters for simple packaging tasks (existing plugins: man,
    desktop, appdata, fixperms, strip, composer, deps).
  - Added --deb-sign option.
  - Changed zip plugin to omit /tmp/package* path.
  - Now supports .pax and .cpio through the tar plugin.
  - First release of the `xpm` branch. Gemspec adapted.
