Release Notes: Most notably, this version adds signature support and various smaller fixes.

Release Notes: Major changes were made in this version, which again requires an update of VM/VE/RM embedded pb to work correctly. Support was added for remote machines, so pb can now be used in a build farm context very easily. Bugs were fixed regarding parallelism build issues, additional sources and patch support, and ebuild generation. Security was improved with sudo restrictions. Internal structure management was improved with the introduction of $pbos.

Release Notes: This version is not backward compatible. It is highly recommended to update your VMs/VEs with the setupvm|ve command. The cms2* commands now take the content of the CMS/VCS and not the sandbox status. For the previous behaviour, the sbx2* commands can be used instead. Parallelism is now supported during the sbx|cms2build and sbx|cms|build2vm|ve phases, which reduces build time for packages. This requires that the Parallel::ForkManager Perl module be installed.

Release Notes: rpmbootstrap was introduced. Bugs were fixed. debootstrap support was added. The documentation was improved. The Web site was created.
