Re: unrar version confusion
Quoting Nico Golde <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
I had a look on the unrar package and the version number
confuses me a little bit.
On http://packages.qa.debian.org/u/unrar.html you can see
the past uploads and what confuses me is:
# [2004-07-05] Accepted 1:0.0.1-1 in unstable (low) (Niklas Vainio)
# [2004-06-24] Accepted 3.3.6-2 in unstable (low) (Chris Anderson)
# [2004-03-09] Accepted 3.3.6-1 in unstable (low) (Petr Cech)
Why is the latest version in debian lower than the one before?
Becuase it is, in fact, a different program. The higher numbered releases
are of a non-free version of unrar. The newer releases are of a free version
that is going into main.
