VERSION DESCRIPTION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+3.5.0 - sync databases are read directly from the repo database
+ tarball (FS#8586, FS#20233)
+ - local database "depends" files have been merged into the
+ "desc" file
+ - pacman-db-upgrade script provided to update the local
+ database format
+ - sync database extension is .db (without compression suffix)
+ - requires repo-add from pacman-3.4+
+ - package versions can have an 'epoch' value defined that will
+ overrule any version comparison
+ - this replaces the use of the "force" option in allowing for
+ package updates with versions that do not conform to the
+ default version comparison operations
+ - package versions have the format [epoch:]pkgver-pkgrel
+ - disk space checking
+ - check available space before installing packages (FS#11639)
+ - enabled by the "CheckSpace" option in pacman.conf
+ - attempt to stop install if we hit an extraction issue
+ (FS#7692, FS#22034)
+ - improved interactive selection for groups/provides
+ (FS#19704, FS#19853)
+ - more fine grained control of ignorine dependency resolution
+ - -Sd to ignore dependency versions only
+ - -Sdd to ignore all dependency information
+ - clean-up of --help output (FS#19526)
+ - CleanMethod for package cache cleaning can use both
+ KeepInstalled and KeepCurrent simultaneously
+ - various speed-ups:
+ - improved internal storage of the package cache
+ - faster pkgname/depends searches
+ - use OpenSSL crypto functions if available
+ - makepkg:
+ - add support for running testsuites in a check() function
+ (FS#15145)
+ - controlled by BUILDENV option 'check' in makepkg.conf
+ which may be overridden by --check/--nocheck on the
+ command-line
+ - extract any file bsdtar recognizes
+ - STRIP_DIRS has been removed in favor of stripping all
+ recognized files
+ - improve $srcdir/$pkgdir check to reduce false positives
+ - $pkgname can be used in split package() functions (FS#22174)
+ - added '!buildflags' option to allow unsetting of CFLAGS,
+ CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS
+ - repo-add:
+ - added -f/--files to create files database (FS#11302)
+ - pactree: rewritten in C using libalpm
3.4.3 - fix attempted double remove of all files issue during upgrades
- respect IgnorePkg/IgnoreGroup for group members (FS#19854)
- back out epoch changes; 3.5.X will handle them differently
