Sbopkg version 0.12.0 has been released.  Some of the highlights include:

* New code that better catches MD5SUM failures and offers the
opportunity to delete the corrupted source.
* New menu entry that allows a user to manually delete the saved
sources for any particular software in the SBo repository.  Thanks to
Drew Ames for the bug reports and suggestions that led to both of
these two fixes and additions.
* Add in ability to edit the *.info file in a similar manner to
editing the SlackBuild.  With this addition, a user can now manually
update the .info and SlackBuild from within sbopkg and build and
install an updated package before it hits the repo.  If you use vi/vim
as your $EDITOR and want an easy way to insert the MD5SUM of a new
source tarball, try ":r! md5sum /path/to/new/source".  Then clean up
the inserted information into a proper .info file layout.  Thanks to
nille for prodding me to get this done.
* Move the editing functions into a submenu to better organize the
'info item' menu for each software selection.  Thanks to nille for the
* Several error-checking and graceful exit cleanups and fixes.

Please check out the included ChangeLog for more details.

As always, please report any bugs to me via email, the sbopkg mailing
list, or, preferably, using the Issue tracker on the project's
website.  I can also be found in #sbopkg, #slackbuilds, and
##slackware on freenode.

A noarch package and source tarball for version 0.12.0 can be found at
the sbopkg project website:
