Release Notes: The user interface was improved by adding more information to some error and informational messages. An interactive query mode was added for update, erase, clone, and branch operations. Automatic archive unpacking now recognizes cpio archives. The Requires policy can now take a synthetic RPATH for finding libraries.
Release Notes: This release makes the update process safer by recognizing more cases to treat as an update instead of an erase/install, and has quite a few updates to the build process, particularly support for a new concept called contexts.
Release Notes: A new last-ditch update mechanism, "conary update-conary", has been added to make any future protocol conversions easier to manage. The conary update command has an expanded syntax that is more expressive. OpenPGP key trust metrics are now implemented so that the client can choose whether to trust packages based on their signatures. Rollbacks are now listed newest-first. A generally harmless bug in dependency provision introduced in 0.70.1 has been fixed.
Release Notes: The package building code has multiple fixes for bugs in unusual cases of shared library dependencies.
Release Notes: Conary 0.62.16's new "path hash" feature overflowed a key data structure for a few large packages, preventing successful updates. This StreamSet data structure has been redesigned to be much more flexible, but this invalidates all changesets, including rollbacks, and changes the network protocol incompatibly. The Wiki has details on how to upgrade.
Release Notes: The "install bucket" mechanism for determining when troves can co-exist was replaced with a more flexible and complete "path hash" mechanism. With this new mechanism, troves that have no file conflicts can always be installed side-by-side on the same system. Conary is also much more verbose when doing updates.
Release Notes: More bugs have been fixed in group updating, particularly from one branch to another. The clone facility has been further enhanced to allow cloning an older version on a branch to the head of the same branch, providing a quick "revert" mechanism.
Release Notes: This release compresses XML-RPC requests for significant latency improvements. It contains some system database updates, including following the rename of the main Conary contributed software repository. The clone facility has been significantly updated; in particular, it now allows "sideways" cloning. Threaded downloads no longer hang when one thread exits. (These changes are in 0.62.13 and 0.62.14; 0.62.13 was never formally released.)
Release Notes: A bug that affected only a few packages but could invalidate cryptographic signatures has been fixed. A bug that could lose files when switching between flavors has been fixed. Many improvements were made to the interface for shadowing and specifying versions in several contexts.
Release Notes: One change affects system management: Pinned troves are now correctly handled recursively; erasing a pinned package no longer can leave pinned components still installed. Affecting packaging: a bugfix in the previous version introduced another bug that made it impossible to build packages with private libraries; now soname dependencies for private libraries include the path to the library to avoid confusion with public library soname dependencies. InstallBuckets can use macros in component names. --resume works even with auto-discovered mainDir. Group recipe syntax has been improved.
