This file lists the major changes between versions. For a more detailed list
of every change, see the ChangeLog.
+0.3.0 (in progress):
+ * Lots of internal code cleanup.
+
+ * Doxygen generated documentation is much cleaner. Documentation about
+ configuration file formats is now provided.
+
+ * The build directory for Portage format repositories is now configurable
+ using a parameter named 'buildroot'.
+
+ * .tar.Z files are now unpacked correctly.
+
+ * The 'date' command in ebuild global scope now works with a warning,
+ rather than being a hard failure.
+
+ * --pretend --install now displays detailed counts ('1 upgrade, 3 new')
+ rather than just a raw number.
+
+ * As part of the test suite, various full installs of test packages are
+ now performed.
+
+ * Multiple eclass directories and multiple profile directories can now
+ be specified for Portage format repositories. The 'eclassdir' and
+ 'profiledir' keys are now deprecated in favour of 'eclassdirs' and
+ 'profiledirs'.
+
+ * Added a --list-vulnerabilities commandline option, mostly for use by
+ tree maintainers.
+
+ * A new repository format named "nothing" is available. It does not
+ contain any packages, but supports a sync parameter to make automatically
+ syncing other directories simpler.
+
+ * Fetching is now handled via wrapper scripts. Support for file:/// URLs
+ has been added.
+
+ * If the user mirrors.conf file contains an entry with a mirror named '*',
+ first try fetching everything from that location.
+
+ * A warning is now emitted when dropping circular dependencies.
+
+ * The merge / unmerge code is now written in C++ rather than bash, and the
+ MD5 implementation is now internal rather than relying upon 'md5sum', which
+ works around problems when upgrading libc.
+
+ * A --dl-no-unnecessary-upgrades commandline option has been added.
+
+ * xterm titles are now updated for syncing, similar to previous behaviour
+ for installing.
+
0.2.5:
* Syncing via Git is possible (git://, git+http://, git+ssh://).
