This file lists the major changes between versions. For a more detailed list
of every change, see the ChangeLog.
+ * The 'everything' set is now called 'installed-packages'. A new set named
+ 'installed-slots' has been added, which is similar but includes slot
+ restrictions matching installed slots.
+ * kdebuild-1 support has been removed, following the Gentoo Council's
+ decision to remove all mention of it from the Package Manager
+ Specification. Users with installed kdebuild-1 packages must remove them
+ before upgrading.
+ * Support for EAPI 4 (formerly known as EAPI 3) is present but not
+ installed, since the specification has yet to be approved.
+ * Support for the new EAPI 3 is present but not installed, since the
+ specification has yet to be approved.
+ * Various large code cleanups and build system cleanups.
+ * An obscure resolver bug that results in 'evolution' trying to downgrade
+ 'gnupg' on Gentoo has been fixed.
+ * paludis -i foo::installed now gives an explanation of why it doesn't do
+ what some people seem to expect.
+ * Assorted documentation tweaks.
+ * Various improvements 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.
* Qualudis has been removed.
