New IPS (pkg(5) Toolkit - Entitlements and more
By pelegri on Jan 30, 2009
Version 2.1 of the IPS-based, multi-platform, package management system is now available for Download. Full details are available in the Release Notes but Tom's announcement lists the highlights and Joe provides an screencast of the features.
Probably the most significant new feature in 2.1 is entitlement support, which will enables us to use it to deliver our commercial products. The first GlassFish product that will use the new release is WebSynergy, now "almost out".
The team is already working on version 2.2 to fixing some bugs and add features / improvements, including some issues I stepped on while trying out the latest JSF Package; I'll try to write about those later in the weekend (... done).
