Release Notes: This release works around various libarchive oddities that cause problems with binary packages. It prioritizes suggestions.conf over the --suggestions and --recommendations command line options.
Release Notes: When a package strongly blocks other installed slots of itself, the resolver no longer fails to find an ordering if upgrading older slots would make the blocker no longer met. "cave show" now displays overridden masks on unmasked packages.
Release Notes: The 'paludis' client is now deprecated in favour of 'cave'. There is a new 'cave resolve' option: '--one-binary-per-slot'. Suggestions may now be controlled by 'suggestions.conf'.
Release Notes: Certain abusive || ( ) dependencies are now handled in the same way that Portage treats them. When using 'cave uninstall --remove-if-dependent' followed by 'cave resume', dependent packages would be added to rather than removed from world. This is now fixed.
Release Notes: cave report would previously not mention certain security issues. This is now fixed. Syncing via rsync now uses "--delete-delay" rather than "--delete-after". This requires rsync 3.
Release Notes: EAPI 4 is enabled. A new "cave" subcommand, "digest", was added. A new "cave print-unused-distfiles" option, "--include", was added. Updates now work correctly again.
Release Notes: This release shows the number of skipped and failed packages in "x of y" output. It runs pkg_pretend even if certain confirmations are required. There are various minor bugfixes and documentation tweaks.
Release Notes: New 'cave sync' options: '--suffix' (and support for sync suffixes in repository configuration files). 'cave resolve' now shows which reasons are responsible for reconfiguration requirements. The user used for userpriv operations (typically 'paludisbuild') is now expected to be in the 'tty' group. The 'repo_file' variable may now be used in repository_defaults.conf. New repo_file_basename and repo_file_unsuffixed variables have been added. Values in overlay thirdpartymirrors files now override those in masters. The documentation now recommends use of the 'cave' client rather than 'paludis'.
Release Notes: "cave resolve --make binaries" now behaves properly when considering packages that cannot be made into binaries. "cave show x" will no longer suggest every package name containing an "x". Display-If-Profile headers in news items are now handled correctly.
Release Notes: A bug in via-binary package ordering has been fixed. "cave owner" now has a --dereference option. libmagic is now used rather than calling the "file" executable to determine whether or not to strip files.
