    Release Notes: The merger is able to detect hardlinks and tries to merge them as such. Environment checking from VDB is less strict to avoid issues with packages installed several years ago when USE_EXPAND didn't include KERNEL, etc. A quoting bug that would result in unwanted wildcard expansion when rewriting *DEPEND values was fixed.

      Release Notes: paludis --owner now shows matching files when --full-match is not specified. importare now does stripping the same way as E repositories, based upon the --debug-build argument. This release is less strict when doing environment checking when loading an entry from VDB, to avoid issues with some Portage versions not setting certain variables.

        Release Notes: rsync based syncers (rsync://, file://, tar+http://, and tar+ftp://) now support --exclude in sync_options, as well as --exclude-from. Set names are now supported in package_mask.conf and package_unmask.conf. An experimental new Exndbam repository was added, which can replace VDB on systems that don't use Gentoo trees. In various places, sorting is done by i-node rather than filename when doing directory recursion. This gives substantial I/O improvements.

          Release Notes: The recent version of Portage unpacks lzma files, in violation of PMS and without any way for ebuilds to check for this behavior. This misbehavior is now emulated. A work-around was made for tr1::shared_ptr<> not being usable with a tr1::mem_fn when using boost. Various ICC oddities were worked around.

            Release Notes: Playman is now an "official" ruby demo script. Various Ruby updates were made. Various QA updates were made. Sending Paludis a SIGINT or SIGTERM while it has children active will no longer lock. Linux appears to randomly nuke set*id bits when doing a rename(), so this is worked around.

              Release Notes: dohtml has been fixed. There is a new demo hook, pretend_resume.bash, to print the resume command at the end of the --install --pretend display.

                  Release Notes: Various switches now support --no- for negation. This release adds paludis, inquisitio --show-authors. {keywords,licenses,use}.conf can now contain single or double quoted tokens. paludis --install --pretend will show how many bytes still need to be downloaded for a given package to be installed. Some merger improvements were implemented. Symlink rewriting is now part of the merger and is EAPI-configurable. Rather than spawning a second paludis instance, has_version, etc. in ebuilds now communicate back to the original Paludis process through a pipe. Paludis will now work with Bash 3.2_p20 and later.

                    Release Notes: Further protection was added against the sandbox clobbering PATH. --master-repository-dir is now ignored if it is the same as the main repository. Various API documentation improvements were made.

                      Release Notes: This release is still broken with respect to CRAN and Ruby bindings for dep specs. The paludis --info output was made more verbose. Paludis now fully supports filenames containing spaces. inquisitio is now much more flexible and faster. "paludis --continue-on-failure if-independent" was implemented. libebt and libwrapiter are no longer used. The --dl-deps-default option works again. More robustness and compliance improvements were made for reconcilio, including proper handling of ELF files that use the non-native byte order. --show-use-descriptions works as in 0.24 for new packages.
