This file lists the major changes between versions. For a more detailed list
of every change, see the ChangeLog.
* 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.
+ * Various Ruby 1.9 fixes.
+ * Hashes are now memoised, to speed up --pretend --install for certain
+ * We now use pcrecpp rather than pcre++ to avoid the latter's lack of thread
+ * 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 we've
+ ironed out any kinks. With the default configuration, 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.
* Wildcards are now allowed for --contents and --executables.
