Incompatible Changes ⚠

  • apkg install now works on project source by default like other commands (srcpkg, build). Old behavior of installing custom packages is available through -C/--custom-pkgs option.
  • -i/--install-dep option of apkg build was renamed to -b/--build-dep to remove ambiguity. Old alias still works but it's deprecated an will be removed in future versions.
