* The "bite the bullet" release. * Enhanced fix_db.pl to detect and deal with every debconf db corruption scenario that has been reported to me. Run it on upgrade from versions prior to this one. I suspect that all instances of inconsistent and corrupt debconf db's are due to past bugs in debconf and especially the transition from the crufty old data::dumper db, and the "fix" for the missing template problem, plus possibly some unclean shutdown problems. So fix them all now, and either the problems go away for good or I prove my theories wrong if they pop back up later. * Closes: #128707, #128265, #99786
* Let's call it 1.0, folks! * This leaves the following big things for later: - a better confmodule interface that doesn't eat stdin/out - container template types - select list with explainations - a textual replacement for the dialog frontend that is just as easy to use, and sucks less - better developer's documentation - regression tests - everything else in the TODO file * I mention a dialog frontend replacement that does not suck. The slang frontend was intended to be just that, but it is a failure, with big problems like unscrollable extended descriptions, UI clunkiness, etc. Nobody wants to fix these issues, and so the best thing to do is remove it, before a lot of people begin to use it. Closes: #66170, #81344, #96302, #74722, #77085, #101643 * Removing the slang frontend also involved: - getting rid of debconf/helpvisible, which was only used by it - modifiying the debconf/frontend's template description, thus making all the translatione be out of date again, right as I release 1.0. Bleh. I was able to clean up the french template, but all the other translations of that template were too out of date to live, so I removed it from them. I am accepting updated translations, and I would love to get a 1.1 release out with fully up-to-date translations of everything. - doc updates - libterm-stool-perl will be removed, so removed relations to it - ensuring an upgrade path, if not a very clean one, for people who had it set to use the slang frontend. You'll get dialog now, and just ignore that nasty set of perl errors you get while upgrading to this version, I can't do anything about it w/o some nasty hacking.
* Looks like new shared templates have been ignored ever since 0.9.10! Symtoms that installed a second package that shared a template with an already installed first did not add the second owner to the list of owners. It's possible that this was also responsible for sporadic reports of db corruption; the question that should belong to a template going away when the only recorded other owner was purged. * Added a call in the postinst to a program to clean up after this problem.
* Man page section fixes, Closes: #100076 * Noted in description of shell library that yes, the protocol commands are lower-cased (it already explained about the db_ prefixing). Closes: #100276 * Text frontend UI changes: select and multiselect lists no longer have lettered choices. Instead, it uses numbers, and any unique anchored substring of a choice is understood, too. The old system was great, except when it sucked. This should scale more evenly. * Added full completion to the text frontend! Now it really is the best frontend, for sure.. * French po file update from Martin Quinson <Martin.Quinson@ens-lyon.fr>. * Fixed an obscure bug that made the REGISTER command fail if the owner was set to "" (or any other perlwise-false string).
