Fedora Update Notification
2012-12-21 11:18:36

Name        : nspr
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 4.9.4
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.mozilla.org/projects/nspr/
Summary     : Netscape Portable Runtime
Description :
NSPR provides platform independence for non-GUI operating system
facilities. These facilities include threads, thread synchronization,
normal file and network I/O, interval timing and calendar time, basic
memory management (malloc and free) and shared library linking.

Update Information:

Update nss, nss-softokn, and nss-util to nss-3.14.1, and nspr to nspr-4.9.4.

The release notes are at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/NSS/NSS_3.14.1_release_notes

Please see also the nss-3.14 the release notes are at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/NSS/NSS_3.14_release_notes

Please update the entire set at once to prevent conflicts.

As part of the nss-3.14 upstream functionality refactoring some headers moved to their rightful places.

This change had the effect in fedora, where nss is split into mutiple packages, of some headers moving from one devel rpm to another.

Those file ownership "swaps" could result in updates conflicts if one updates the packages separately.

For example, trying to install nss-util-devel resulted in an install conflict with nss-softokn-devel.

Two other headers moved from nss-softokn-devel to nss-devel changing package owners.

Testing shows that such conflicts do not occur when updating the full set as a whole.
