FEDORA-2015-0479 created by jzeleny 7 years ago for Fedora 21
obsolete

The scl-utils developer team is proud to present SCL 2.0. This new version brings revolution in the internal code structure but it also introduces a bunch of interesting enhancements in the run time part of scl-utils.

Important note: most of these new features require proper support from collections themselves but first collections with such support should be here quite soon.

Request: even though there was a non-public alpha release, this is still a version that needs a lot of testing so if you intend to build a collection with support of these cool new features, let us know if there are some problems.

New commands: list-collections: a new name for --list, implemented for consistency of the command line arguments

list-packages: a new name for --list <collection_name>, same reason as above

load: it will modify the shell in which the command is executed rather than creating a subshell

unload: counterpart of the load command if you don't want to use the collection in current shell any more

man: show man page of the entire collection

New argument: -x, --exec: when running a command with scl enable, use exec() call rather than system() (bug 1029964)

Other: Support in shebangs: it's possible to use scl enable in your shebang lines (the double dash command separator is required)

Compatibility with environment modules: it was requested several times already, so this new version brings you just that.
