WPKG 0.9.9-test1 has been released.
This is a testing release.
Packages, profiles and hosts can be defined in separate files.
Previously wpkg.js was looking for three files: packages.xml,
profiles.xml and hosts.xml, in the same directory where wpkg.js was itself.
Now, additionally, it looks into three folders (if they exist):
packages, profiles, hosts.
In each of these folders you can specify packages, profiles and hosts
definitions, in separate files.
For example, you can place several config files into "hosts" directory:
in each of them you would define hosts that you have in each room.
Similarly, you can do for profiles, in "profiles" directory.
For packages, you can define them in separate file in "packages" directory:
This way we achieve:
1) easier administration, especially if you have more packages
2) you can move package definitions from one server to another - just
copy the xml file for a given package (i.e. firefox.xml) to another
server - provided you use variables, and start WPKG similar to the way
%WPKGROOT%\wpkg.js /synchronize /quiet /nonotify
You will find some examples in the download package.
Comments, questions, problems with this version - send them to the list.
Big big thanks to Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen for this feature.
