Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1315425
Obsolete vte3 in favor of vte2.91
Last modified: 2017-08-15 04:10:20 EDT
vte3-0.36.5 (a.k.a. library version 2.90) is obsolete, it should be superseded by vte2.91 and removed from the distribution.
Newer vte does not only come with an API/ABI-incompatible change (hence the library version bump), but also tons of bugfixes and important feature improvements (such as encrypting the scrollback contents before writing to disk).
Debian Unstable and Ubuntu Xenial have managed to remove this package, and migrate all depending packages to vte2.91. This is a proof that pretty much all vte2.90-based apps have now been updated mainstream to support vte2.91. Hence I believe the migration should be quite simple for Fedora too.
