He's not dead, he's resting

Paludis 0.54.0 Released

Paludis 0.54.0 has been released:

  • ‘cave resolve –remove-if-dependent’ will now cause dependent packages to be removed from world, if no versions remain.
  • ‘cave resolve –make’ now defaults to ‘chroot’ when the environment’s preferred root is not ‘/’.
  • ‘cave display-resolution –show-option-descriptions’ now works as documented.
  • ‘cave fix-linkage’ may take multiple ‘–library’ arguments.
  • New ‘cave’ subcommands: ‘report’, ‘print-id-environment-variable’.
  • ‘cave print-‘ commands are now consistent in handling ‘–all’ / ‘-a’ and ‘–best’ / ‘-b’.
  • ‘cave show’ will now always show keys specified by ‘-k’, even if those keys are internal-only or complex.
  • ‘cave search’ now takes an optional SQLite index, which can be created using ‘cave manage-search-index’.
  • ‘cave search’ now has a ‘–visible’ option.
  • The ‘importare’, ‘inquisitio’ and ‘reconcilio’ clients are now deprecated in favour of ‘cave import, ‘cave search’ and ‘cave fix-linkage’ respectively.
  • Output managers and output.conf are now documented features, and a new ‘command’ output manager handler was added.
  • Hooks are now run using an output manager, where appropriate. The API for .so hooks has been changed to allow this.
  • The demo hooks have been removed, since none are particularly useful with ‘cave’.
  • ‘cave’ now has a global ‘–colour’ option, and coloured output is disabled by default when outputting to a non-tty.
  • The output format for certain cave commands can now be tinkered with by the user. Use ‘cave dump-cave-formats-conf’ to create ~/.cave/formats.conf and then edit as desired.
  • The way sub-programs are executed has changed to be somewhat less convoluted.

    What about the new_packages hook?

      I think if you’re going to do something like that, you should make a decent job of it rather than going with a quick hack.
