As previously announced , shortly after the release of RPM 4.10.3, a
regression of potential data-loss severity was discovered in it and the
entire release pulled back for further investigation. As the 4.10.3
release can in some cases cause data-loss, the tarball will not be
reintroduced to downloads, instead this release effectively replaces it.
For download instructions and changes from 4.10.3 see the release notes at:
The problems of 4.10.3 are closely related but not equal to those of
4.11.0. While 22.214.171.124 additionally fixed a long-standing %ghost %config
erasure quirk explained in , that is not included in this release:
the code-bases differ significantly in their handling of %config files
and backporting would've required far bigger changes than is comfortable
for this kind of emergency-fix. In other words, the only thing changed
here is fix for the regression that 4.10.3 introduced, and test-suite
cases to verify the behavior.
On behalf of the rpm-team,
