Version 0.8pre4 of apt-got

Release Notes: This release adds basic refreshing mechanisms and a brute force purger that runs every 12 hours. The FileCache supports object reusage now and does not cloud the memory anymore. OutOfMemoryException should not occur anymore, as the FileCache uses WeakReferences now to keep the objects alive. Documentation has been started. This is scheduled to be the last prerelease before 0.8.

Release Notes: FileCache now has basic support for object caching, and the DebianMirrorFile can recover from manual deletion of the cached file. DebianMirrorFile also sets the internal LastModified and Length values correctly even if the file was already downloaded. PENDING FileLists are now verified correctly, which makes the DebianMirror load the new information properly.

Release Notes: A gzip wrapper is now used if gzipped package lists are available, reducing bandwidth requirements and startup time. Some major bugs were fixed, including a problem where new Release files were not fetched from the remote server under some circumstances. The server still does not reload new Release files automatically, but must be restarted.

Release Notes: Release files are now found and downloaded when the mirror is started, and package lists are verified against MD5 sums found in the Release files. Lists for binary-i386 are downloaded on startup (if not yet present and with the right MD5 sum), and all others are downloaded and parsed on first request.
