A new sbopkg version 0.27.3 has been released.  This is the third bugfix
release in the 0.27.x -stable branch of sbopkg.  This release has a few
fixes, the most important of which is to improve the invocation of
upgradepkg to avoid a fairly rare, but potentially serious, case of
incorrectly removing a package.  Thanks to NaCl for raising this issue
and thanks to slakmagik for coming up with a quick fix.  All users
should upgrade to this new release.

Here is the 0.27.3 ChangeLog:

  * Add museek-plus->museek+ to sbopkg-renames.new.
  * Modify the source fetching code to check the md5sum also of cached
    sources, to fix problems arising with those programs whose source archive
    doesn't change name on version updates. Thanks to David Spencer for
    raising the issue.
  * Exit edit_build_queue menu with 'ESC'; thanks to Nille for the bug report.
  * Modify do_install() to correctly invoke upgradepkg to avoid a fairly rare
    but serious case of removing the wrong package; thanks to NaCl for the
    bug report.

Things are still cooking along in the sbopkg SVN development tree for
the next major release.  Slackware64 support, a major code cleanup, and
several nice enhancements are just some of things we have been hacking
on.  If you would like more information on sbopkg development, free to

Otherwise, a package and source tarball for sbopkg 0.27.3 can be found
at the sbopkg project website:


Thanks and enjoy!
