- The kmodtool script is a helper script for building kernel module RPMs. Previously, the "verrel" parameter in the kmodtool script returned the kernel version and variant string with a dangling sign ("."). With this update, the dangling sign has been removed from the "verrel" output.
- The "brp-java-repack-jars" script was unable to correctly handle certain Java Archive (JAR) files. Those files set permissions on "exploded" directory hierarchies to non-standard permissions modes, such as "0000". With this update, standard user permissions are set correctly on the "exploded" directory hierarchy, which prevents certain errors from occurring, such as being unable to remove the directory tree when it is necessary to do so.
- Previously, the number of parallel compilation jobs suggested by the %_smp_mflags macro was limited to maximum of 16 CPUs. This update introduces the %_smp_ncpus_max macro, which makes the CPU limit adjustable.
- Previously, the /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/rpmrc file contained a leftover "macrofiles" line, which is ignored by later versions of RPM. With this update, the aforementioned line has been removed from rprmc to avoid confusion.
