This Fedora release contains RPM 4.14. Users' general experience of RPM will benefit from the bugfixes and from the better handling of invalid data. Packagers can take advantage of:
Better error reporting by the macro engine
Dependency generators now properly support rich (boolean) dependencies
The maximum supported header size has been significantly raised in RPM 4.14. This cannot be tracked with
rpmlib() dependencies as that would require accessing the header, so attempting to access packages with a header larger than 32MB will cause an abrupt failure with ALL older RPM versions.
For more information please see the RPM 4.14 Release Notes.
