Hi all,
Yes, more releases. The changes in all cases are mostly bug fixes, but there 
are also some improvements to the version-handling for alien dependencies 
contributed by Kevin Quick, and new Aliens support for the Cabal system.

There is a new BootScripts release this time around as well, long overdue. It 
contains no urgent changes, but does have fixes to work when you have something 
other than Bash as /bin/sh. Scripts and Compile have only minor fixes apart 
from the Aliens improvements already mentioned. We now have Aliens support for 
LuaRocks, CPAN, RubyGems, and Cabal, with more hopefully on the way.

The packages are available now from gobolinux.org, and will propagate to the 
other mirrors in the next few minutes and hours. You can use `InstallPackage 
Scripts 2.10.1`, `InstallPackage Compile 1.13.1`, and `InstallPackage 
BootScripts 2.1.6` to fetch them. Please report any bugs you encounter in the 
bug tracker and request help either on the mailing lists or the forums.

Changelogs follow.

Scripts:
2010-01-11 16:03  mohjive

       * Resources/Defaults/Settings/Scripts/CompatibilityList,
         Resources/Dependencies, bin/PrepareProgram: Ported from 015
         branch:
         Do not break quoted options passed as arguments to
         PrepareProgram.
         Fix installation of man files for autotools projects that have
         not adopted FHS yet.
         Remove Python 3.x from dependencies range.
         It's ok to have Util-Linux-NG as a replacement for Util-Linux but
         the opposite is not true because of libblkid.

       * Functions/Archive: Fix Archive to handle oddly-named files using
         file like it tries to, which requires keeping the full path
         around.

2010-01-06 00:40  lucasvr

         Closes bug #418.

       * bin/Alien-LuaRocks, bin/Alien-RubyGems: Update RubyGems and

         Take Python 3.x out of the dependency range.
