I am excited to announce the release of Borg v3.2 and Epkg v3.3. Both have been in the making for about one and a half years.
A short summary of what these packages do might be in order:
borg is a bare-bones package manager that installs packages using
Git submodules. It is most useful to package authors and users who
also contribute to the packages that they use.
epkg provides access to a database containing information about
~8000 Emacs packages. It provides tools for querying the SQL
database and an user interface to list packages and to view detailed
information about individual packages.
The database is now being distributed as a text file instead of in its binary form. That results in more useful diffs and most importantly it shrinks the size of the repository. Users have to remove the old repository and clone the new one in its place.
Several package classes were added, removed and renamed, adding support for GNU savannah, nongnu savannah, updated GNU elpa, new nongnu elpa and sourcehut.
A lot of edge-cases are better supported now.
Details can be found in the borg and epkg release notes.
