      • Support for templates for installing things with specified options #38
      • Display other README files if the slackbuild comes with them #49
    • Bugfixes
      • sboinstall/sboremove disagreeing about a package being installed #44

  • 2.0 - 2016-07-02

    • Major new features
      • LOCAL_OVERRIDES setting

        Allows to keep a directory with local slackbuild dirs that will override whatever is found in the regular repository. #8 #13 #14 #15 #19 #20

      • SLACKWARE_VERSION setting

        Allows to specify the slackware version to sync from SBo. Previously only the version in your /etc/slackware-version was used for this, and if that had gotten updated in -current, you'd have needed to wait both for a new version of sbotools, as well as SBo to get the new repository online before sbotools would work for you again. #19

      • REPO setting

        This will override the SLACKWARE_VERSION setting. It's used to specify an absolute URL for the SBo repository you want to sync with. #6 #19 #27

      • Use sbosrcarch source archive if download fails #7 #19 #24

      • sboupgrade --all option to upgrade everything listed by sbocheck. #9 #19

      • Travis CI integration

        Every push will now cause the test-suite to be run. #18

      • Hundreds of new unit-tests. #18 #19 #23 #24 #25 #27 #28 #31 #32 #33 #35 #41 #43

      • sbofind will now also use tags if they're available #37

      • Use system perl when running and installing sbotools.
      • sbocheck output changed. #10 #13 #20

      • sbosnap: display download progress, update git trees better. #26 #27
