0.5.0 (July 17, 2015)


  • The structure of a plist output by --report-plist has changed to reflect the
    structure of the summary results described below in ADDITIONS. (GH-163)


  • New processor, GitHubReleasesInfoProvider. Used to fetch download URLs and metadata about
    releases posted on GitHub.
  • autopkg run interactively offers suggestions for similar recipe names when a recipe can't
    be found, and also offers to search for the desired recipe on GitHub.
  • New install verb. autopkg install Firefox is equivilent to autopkg run Firefox.install
  • Processors may now define their own summary reporting data. Previously AutoPkg provided
    summary data only for several known, core processors like URLDownloader, PkgCreator, etc.
    Now AutoPkg will print out data provided within a dict value of an env key ending in
    _summary_result (see Processor Summary Reporting on the AutoPkg wiki). (GH-163)


  • SparkleUpdateInfoProvider now sets the version key based on what feed item it has
    processed. This key can be used in later steps of the recipe. (GH-166)
  • AutoPkg now warns against being run as root.
  • Use of new launchd 2.0 socket API is used by autopkgserver if running on Yosemite or
    higher. (GH-176)

  • FileCreator now supports optional file_mode input variable.
  • SparkleUpdateInfoProvider processor is now skipped early if --pkg argument is given
    to autopkg run, similar to URLDownloader.


  • Fixes in MunkiImporter's logic when attempting to locate a matching item in a repo.
  • PkgCreator: fix an exception when setting mode on a direcotry (in chown, in
    pkg_request). (GH-177)
  • BrewCaskInfoProvider now properly interpolates '#{version}' within 'url' strings.
