CHANGELOG.md 4.93 KB

0.7.1 (2020-09-18)

  • bugfix release

0.7.0 (2020-08-27)

  • the hook system (setup, extract, essential, customize and hook-dir) is made public and is now a documented interface
  • tarball is also created if the output is a named pipe or character special
  • add --format option to control the output format independent of the output filename or in cases where output is directed to stdout
  • generate ext2 filesystems if output file ends with .ext2 or --format=ext2
  • add --skip option to prevent some automatic actions from being carried out
  • implement dpkg-realpath in perl so that we don't need to run tar inside the chroot anymore for modes other than fakechroot and proot
  • add ready-to-use hook scripts for eatmydata, merged-usr and busybox
  • add tarfilter tool
  • use distro-info-data and debootstrap to help with suite name and keyring discovery
  • no longer needs to install twice when --depkgopt=path-exclude is given
  • variant=custom and hooks can be used as a debootstrap wrapper
  • use File::Find instead of "du" to avoid different results on different filesystems
  • many, many bugfixes and documentation enhancements

0.6.1 (2020-03-08)

  • replace /etc/machine-id with an empty file
  • fix deterministic tar with pax and xattr support
  • support deb822-style format apt sources
  • mount /sys and /proc as read-only in root mode
  • unset TMPDIR environment variable for everything running inside the chroot

0.6.0 (2020-01-16)

  • allow multiple --architecture options
  • allow multiple --include options
  • enable parallel compression with xz by default
  • add --man option
  • add --keyring option overwriting apt's default keyring
  • preserve extended attributes in tarball
  • allow running tests on non-amd64 systems
  • generate squashfs images if output file ends in .sqfs or .squashfs
  • add --dry-run/--simulate options
  • add taridshift tool

0.5.1 (2019-10-19)

  • minor bugfixes and documentation clarification
  • the --components option now takes component names as a comma or whitespace separated list or as multiple --components options
  • make_mirror.sh now has to be invoked manually before calling coverage.sh

0.5.0 (2019-10-05)

  • do not unconditionally read sources.list stdin anymore
    • if mmdebstrap is used via ssh without a pseudo-terminal, it will stall forever
    • as this is unexpected, one now has to explicitly request reading sources.list from stdin in situations where it's ambiguous whether that is requested
    • thus, the following modes of operation don't work anymore: $ mmdebstrap unstable /output/dir < sources.list $ mmdebstrap unstable /output/dir http://mirror < sources.list
    • instead, one now has to write: $ mmdebstrap unstable /output/dir - < sources.list $ mmdebstrap unstable /output/dir http://mirror - < sources.list
  • fix binfmt_misc support on docker
  • do not use qemu for architectures unequal the native architecture that can be used without it
  • do not copy /etc/resolv.conf or /etc/hostname if the host system doesn't have them
  • add --force-check-gpg dummy option
  • allow hooks to remove start-stop-daemon
  • add /var/lib/dpkg/arch in chrootless mode when chroot architecture differs
  • create /var/lib/dpkg/cmethopt for dselect
  • do not skip package installation in 'custom' variant
  • fix EDSP output for external solvers so that apt doesn't mark itself as Essential:yes
  • also re-exec under fakechroot if fakechroot is picked in 'auto' mode
  • chdir() before 'apt-get update' to accomodate for apt << 1.5
  • add Dir::State::Status to apt config for apt << 1.3
  • chmod 0755 on qemu-user-static binary
  • select the right mirror for ubuntu, kali and tanglu

0.4.1 (2019-03-01)

  • re-enable fakechroot mode testing
  • disable apt sandboxing if necessary
  • keep apt and dpkg lock files

0.4.0 (2019-02-23)

  • disable merged-usr
  • add --verbose option that prints apt and dpkg output instead of progress bars
  • add --quiet/--silent options which print nothing on stderr
  • add --debug option for even more output than with --verbose
  • add some no-op options to make mmdebstrap a drop-in replacement for certain debootstrap wrappers like sbuild-createchroot
  • add --logfile option which outputs to a file what would otherwise be written to stderr
  • add --version option

0.3.0 (2018-11-21)

  • add chrootless mode
  • add extract and custom variants
  • make testsuite unprivileged through qemu and guestfish
  • allow empty lost+found directory in target
  • add 54 testcases and fix lots of bugs as a result

0.2.0 (2018-10-03)

  • if no MIRROR was specified but there was data on standard input, then use that data as the sources.list instead of falling back to the default mirror
  • lots of bug fixes

0.1.0 (2018-09-24)

  • initial release
