+* It is now possible to use `emerge <file>` to reinstall the package that
+ installed a particular file. Package contents entries are indexed to
+ improve performance. A command such as `emerge /lib/modules` can serve
+ as a decent substitute for module-rebuild.
* Namespace sanitizing: move all portage related code into portage.* namespace,
rename portage_foo modules to portage.foo (but keep symlinks for compability)
* Add license visibility filtering (GLEP 23)
-* Enable "echo" and "save_summary" elog modules by default
-* Fix -* handling in package.keywords to work as intended (reset the accepted
- keywords list), also see RELEASE-NOTES.
* Experimental support for preserving old library files on package upgrades
based on FEATURES=preserve-libs
-* Make elog functionality available to python code
* Add support for news items (GLEP 42)
* Add support for generic package sets (also see RELEASE-NOTES)

* The dependency resolver now has a feedback mechanism that helps make atom
selections more consistent with previous selections that have been added to
the graph. This solves some common cases of bug #1343.
