Obsolete or renamed command line options


The --status command was changed to work as under dpkg. dpkg makes the distinction between installed and non-installed packages for the --field and --status commands respectively. wpkg does not distinguish and both functions work the same way.

The old functionality will not be available as a direct command anymore. You can still get the old output by specifying the X-Status field:

wpkg --status <package-name> X-Status

We are getting the --package-status command in place too. It is supposed to be a form of --status-fd implementation but the output is different and no file descriptors are supported.


In version 0.9.0, we decided to rename the --validate-fields option into --verify-fields.
