This is a stable release featuring all of the speedups introduced in 1.3.0 and 1.3.1 as well as some additional minor enhancements to keep almost all of the program code perpetually 'compiled' for the end-user. Additionally, significant commenting has been added to various areas of the code to improve comprehension for anyone reviewing it. Next on the roadmap is better handling for 'problem' rpm files.

This release fixes a bug introduced in version 1.3.0 that caused it to randomly fail to pick the very latest release out of multiple possibilities. In addtion it is *literally* twice as fast as the latest stable release (1.2.1).

This is a testing release featuring significant changes to the internal structure especially of rpmupdate.py to generate performance enhancements (speedups of around 30% when dealing with large numbers of files). Additionally it fixes a bug in vercomp.py that prevented it from correctly dealing with very large integers ( >32 bits large). Once testing completes OK on this release, there will be some code cleanup and this will become the official stable branch probably at around 1.3.1/2

RPMAutoUpdate 1.2.1 has several significant enhancements over previous releases. The order of package install has been improved to deal with packages dependent on new glibc versions; a debugging framework has been added to allow access to several levels of debugging output so you can follow the program flow; some small speedups have been added; support for 'noarch' packages has been implemented correctly. This release has been tested on RH7.3, 8.0, 9 in various default configurations to successfully update them to full patch-readiness with just one command (in some cases applying over 300+ patches with one commandline).

RPMAutoUpdate is now at version 1.1.5. This includes a few major revisions to the options available with it, and as such is currently sitting under the rpmautoupdate-testing branch. This release adds support for suppressing error message output, and ignoring errors generated from internal processing running shell commands. Additionally it now includes New Posix Thread Library (nptl) packages in with the glibc packages; allowing a default RedHat 9 'everything' install to now be correctly updated to full-patch-readiness with just one command. This release also cleans up documentation, help, comments, and version references in all three modules for RPMAutoUpdate. Enjoy!
