What's new in Zero Install 2.8:

  • NEW FEATURES:
  • Allow source="true" on dependency elements to require the source code of a dependency (Tim Cuthbertson).
  • We now support separate source and binary selections of the same interface. An additional "source" attribute on the element says whether the root selection is source or binary.
  • Use .netrc settings when making a connection. This may be useful to access a private repository protected using HTTP basic authentication. Requested by Brad Hilton.

Zero Install - A formal description of the XML feed file format for Zero Install.
Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. Zero Install allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own web-sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates and digital signatures.

Also, Zero Install is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.

Furthermore, Zero Install does not define a new packaging format; unmodified tarballs or zip archives can be used.

Instead, Zero Install defines an XML metadata format to describe these packages and the dependencies between them.

A single metadata file can be used on multiple platforms (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows), assuming binary or source archives are available that work on those systems.
