+0.52.0:
+ * format="exheres" and format="ebuild" are now deprecated in favour of
+ format="e".
+
+ * Specifying 'root' in a repository config file now overrides the
+ environment-supplied default.
+
+ * 'cave resolve' will now select packages even if [use] dependencies are
+ unmet, and will display the necessary changes needed to user
+ configuration.
+
+ * 'cave resolve --without' will now allow nothing at all to be installed.
+
+ * 'cave resolve' now has options for chroot handling.

+ empty descriptions.
+
+ * 'cave resolve' now has a '--fetch' option to skip non-fetch jobs.
+
+ * 'cave show' now has a '--no-versions' option.
+
+0.50.2:
+ * 'cave resolve --continue-on-failure' interacted weirdly with background
+ fetching. This is now fixed.
+
+ * Support for automatic repository configuration creation via installing
+ a 'repository/somerepo' pseudo-package is now available on Gentoo.
+
+ * Queries in the form '*/*::foo->' no longer force pointless generation of
+ metadata for ebuilds.

0.50.1:
