Release Notes: Various improvements were made to error handling. Syncing svn repositories no longer breaks when using weird locales. GNU info handling will now work even if Paludis is run via sudo with env_reset enabled.
Release Notes: Qualudis has been removed. Various cached values are now forcibly discarded when they're not going to be used anymore, leading to paludis --owner and reconcilio using considerably less RAM. Various bug, style, and performance fixes related to updates (package moves, etc). By default, updates will still only be displayed but not carried out; consult the FAQ for details.
Release Notes: The Git syncer now has various options for dealing with branches. Experimental support was added for profile updates (such as package moves). By default, updates will be displayed but not carried out; consult the FAQ for details. Support for the recently changed EAPI 3 is present and used during tests but excluded from the install target.
Release Notes: A bug in which fetch failures would sometimes not register as errors was fixed.
Release Notes: Notifier callbacks allow clients to tell the user what's going on when generating metadata, performing resolutions etc. Sets now work slightly differently. For sets defined by multiple repositories (e.g. 'system'), 'setname::repo' can be used to access the part of the set defined by a given repository. Upgrading an unpackaged package no longer errors out. Combining :slot and ::/path restrictions now works correctly.
Release Notes: Failures installing qt-core on Gentoo have been fixed.
Release Notes: Various fixes when using the Portage configuration were made.
Release Notes: The =...* dependency operator in configuration files and command line arguments now matches component-wise rather than character-wise. Support for EAPI 3 is present and used during tests but excluded from the install target.
Release Notes: Various Ruby 1.9 fixes were made. Hashes are now memoised, to speed up --pretend --install for certain cases. pcrecpp is now used rather than pcre++ to avoid the latter's lack of thread sanity.
Release Notes: System packages are now treated as 'used' for --uninstall. Fetch-related errors that can be caught up front are now tested at --pretend time. Support for [.key=value] dependency specifications. Support for configurable output managers. These are undocumented in this release, and configuration formats may change without backwards compatibility; documentation and stability will be provided once any kinks have been ironed out. By default, message logs for all packages and build logs for failed packages are kept in /var/log/paludis/. SLOT and EAPI now show up as metadata keys, and are searchable.
