- Escape '%' characters in file names (#266, #222. Patch by John Wittkoski)
0.4.18 (September 25, 2012)
- Fix regression in rpm building where the epoch in was missing in the rpm,
but prior fpm versions defaulted it to 1. This caused rpms built with newer
fpms to appear "older" than older rpms. Tests added to ensure this regression
is caught prior to future releases! (Reported by eliklein)
0.4.17 (September 12, 2012)
- Remove accidental JSON warning when using '-s python'
0.4.16 (September 6, 2012)
- Fix compatibility with Ruby 1.8.7 (broken in 0.4.15)
0.4.15 (September 6, 2012)
- pear: support custom channels with --pear-channel <channel> (#207)
Example: fpm -s pear -t deb --pear-channel drush
- permit literal '\n' in --description, fpm will replace with a newline
character. Example: fpm --description "line one\nline two" (#251)
- improve error messaging when trying to output a package to a directory that
doesn't exist (#244)
- deb: convert '>' and '<' dependency operators to the correct '>>' and '<<'
debian version operators (#250, patch by Thomas Meson).
- deb: add --deb-priority flag (#232) for setting the debian 'priority'
value for your package.
- add --template-value. Used to expose arbitrary values to script templates.
If you do --template-value hello=world, in your template you can do
<%= hello %> to get 'world' to show up in your maintainer scripts.
- python: add --python-install-data flag to set the --install-data option to (#255, patch by Thomas Meson)
- Reject bad dependency flags (ones containing commas) and offer alternative.
- Try to copy a file if hardlinking fails with permission problems (#253,
patch by Jacek Lach)
- Make --exclude, if a directory, include itself and any children, recursive.
0.4.14 (August 24, 2012)
- rpm: Replace newlines with space in any license setting. (#252)
0.4.13 (August 14, 2012)
- Make --exclude accept path prefixes as well. If you have a files in
'usr/share/man' in your package, you can now exclude all of a subdir
by doing '--exclude usr/share/man'
0.4.12 (August 10, 2012)
- Fix a major bug introduced in 0.4.11 that caused all deb packages to
contain empty maintainer scripts if not otherwise specified, which made
apt/dpkg quite unhappy
0.4.11 (August 7, 2012)
- Fix some symlink handling to prevent links from being followed during
cleanup (#228, patch by sbuss)
- rpm: 'vendor' in rpm spec is now omitted if empty or nil. This fixes a bug
where rpmbuild fails due to empty 'Vendor' tag if you convert rpm to rpm.

- dir: don't try to set utime on symlinks (#234, #240, patch by ctgswallow)

Example: fpm -s dir -t rpm --prefix /usr/local -n example /etc/motd
(patch by jkoppe)
- deb: --deb-compression flag: Support different compression methods.
Default continues to be gzip.
- new flag: --template-scripts. This lets you write script templates for
--after-install, etc. Templates are ERB, so you can do things like
'<%= name %>' to get the package name in the script, etc.
- warn on command invocations that appear to have stray flags to try and
help users who have complex command lines that are failling.
0.4.10 (May 25, 2012)
- Fix python package support for python3 (#212, patch by Slezhuk Evgeniy)

patch by Sven Fischer)
- Allow setting default user/group for files in rpm packages (#208, patch by
Jason Rogers). Note: This adds --user and --group flags to effect this.
These flags may go away in the future, but if they do, they will be

/usr, etc.
- make --deb-custom-control to work again (Tor Arne Vestbø)
- Add --rpm-digest flag to allow selection of the rpm 'file name' digest
algorithm. Default is 'md5' since it works on the most rpm systems.

also setting -C (#187)

(Reported by Thomas Meson,
0.4.2 (March 21, 2012)
- Set default temporary directory to /tmp
- Improve symlink handling (patch by Aleix Conchillo Flaqué, pull/177))
- Python package support changes (thanks to input by Luke Macken):
* New flag: --python-install-bin. Sets the location for python package
scripts (default: /usr/bin)
* New flag: --python-install-lib. Sets the location for the python
package to install libs to, default varies by system. Usually something
like /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages.
* Fix up --prefix support
* Improve staged package installation
0.4.1 (March 19, 2012)
- Fix fpm so it works in ruby 1.8 again.
Tests run, and passing:
rvm 1.8.7,1.9.2,1.9.3 do bundle exec rspec
0.4.0 (March 18, 2012)
- Complete rewrite of pretty much everything.
* Otherwise, the 'fpm' command functionality should be the same
* Please let me know if something broke!
- Now has an API (see examples/api directory)
- Also has a proper test suite
- Updated the rpm spec generator to disable all the ways I've found rpmbuild
to molest packages. This means that fpm-generated rpms will no longer
strip libraries, move files around, randomly mutate jar files, etc.
- Add --license and --vendor settings (via Pieter Loubser)
- python support: try to name python packages sanely. Some pypi packages
are literally called 'python-foo' so make sure we generate packages named
'python-foo' and not 'python-python-foo' (via Thomas Meson)
- rpm support: Add --rpm-rpmbuild-define for passing a --define flag to rpmbuild
(via Naresh V)
- PHP pear source support (fpm -s pear ...) (via Andrew Gaffney)
0.3.10 (Oct 10, 2011)
- Allow taking a list of files/inputs on stdin with '-' or with the --inputs
flag. (Matt Patterson)
- (python) pass -U to easy_install (Khalid Goudeaux)
- (debian) quote paths in md5sum calls (Matt Patterson)
- (debian) quiet stderr from dpkg --print-architecture
0.3.9 (Sep 8, 2011)
- Fix bug in 'dir' source that breaks full paths
- Added a bunch of tests (yaay)
0.3.8 and earlier: I have not kept this file up to date very well... Sorry :(
0.2.29 (May 20, 2011)
- Add 'tar' source support. Useful for binary releases to repackage as rpms
and debs. Example:
fpm -s tar -t rpm -n firefox -v 4.0.1 \
--prefix /opt/firefox/4.0.1 firefox-4.0.1.tar.bz2
0.2.28 (May 18, 2011)
- Use --replaces as "Obsoletes" in rpms.
0.2.27 (May 18, 2011)
- If present, DEBEMAIL and DEBFULLNAME environment variables will be used as
the default maintainer. Previously the default was simply <$user@$hostname>
- Add '--replaces' flag for specifying packages replaced by the one you are
building. This only functions in .deb packages now until I find a suitable
synonym in RPM.
- Add --python-bin and --python-easyinstall flags. This lets you choose specific
python and easy_install tools to use when building. Default is simply
'python' and 'easy_install' respectively.
- Add support for ~/.fpmrc - The format of this file is the same as the flags.
One flag per line.
0.2.26 and earlier
