    They're newer versions of the same technology, AFAIK, the naming is done to allow the packages to coexist

    sorry, my mistakes.
    all packages mentioned above do NOT provide setcap command but libcap-progs does.
    and libcap is in fact libcap1.

    but what is the difference between libcap1 and libcap2?
