    Release Notes: GNUtrition will now periodically check and notify you when a new version is available. The USDA data has been updated to the latest version, SR24. The minimum Python version has been increased to version 2.6. GNUtrition is not compatible with Python 3 at this time. GNUtrition now uses the built-in SQLite3 Python module, and the database has been converted to SQLite. Your existing database will be converted automatically. Once that's complete, you no longer need to run a MySQL server for GNUtrition, eliminating a dependency. The new database is stored in ~/.gnutrition.
