Release Notes: This release reduces the number of disk synchronization operations in order to greatly improve performance for barrier-enabled file systems.
Release Notes: This release removes an anti-feature that filtered theoretically duplicate packages during the install operation, preventing some packages in third-party mirrors from being selected and installed by the user.
Release Notes: This version fixes some documentation bugs and adds an option to get a shell to run arbitrary commands after kernel-related operations without exiting the program (similar to stopping the program with Ctrl+Z). In addition, while the program is still published to the public domain, the approach has changed from a mere public domain note to CC0, as recommended by the FSF and others, in order to increase legal safety.
Release Notes: This release adds support for external repositories through the "add-repo", "list-repos", and "remove-repo" operations.
Release Notes: This release fixes a small bug which prevented the program from finding all .new files introduced by installed packages.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem when detecting which version of GnuPG is installed and working that, in some very specific situations, could lead to spurious "signature verification failed" errors.
