New Package Database Live

If you haven’t noticed, the Fink package database is back up, and the server seems to be handling the load alright. I’ve fixed all of the bugs that I’m aware of, but if you notice anything strange in queries or other behavior you don’t expect, please let me know.

Also, one thing I hadn’t mentioned earlier is that in the process of reworking the PDB, I added a pretty major feature: RSS support. Any query you make through the browse interface has an equivalent query through the RSS interface. For example, if you have a query for unstable x86 packages in the “kde” section, excluding splitoffs, you can replace “browse.php” with “rss.php” and get an RSS feed with the results that match that query (in order of their last modification date in CVS).

Woot!
