Release Notes: This release improves concurrent running by altering the locking mechanism. Yum repositories are now installed in the archive root. Support has been added for metadata package repositories (depends on createrepo). Bugfixes and performance improvements.
Release Notes: A problem introduced by SuSE 8.0, as SuSE is now releasing patch RPMs, has been fixed. These have different dependencies compared to the "real" RPMs. If you're running SuSE 8.0 and mirroring SuSE's FTP download server, this is a "must upgrade" release. Download and linking actions have been separated. All downloading is done first, and after that the linking is performed.
