Version 0.4.7                               "Where did all these
                                             balloons come from?
                                             And why am I wearing
                                             a fake nose?"

- New features:

  * The options dialogs have been completely replaced by a new
    interface, based on a top-level list view.  This fixes many
    deficiencies of the old interface: it handles long strings more
    gracefully, avoids many of the focus-handling bugs that the old
    dialogs had, and should generally be better-behaved.
     (Closes: #197976, #331200, #424708)

  * Prompts that ask you to enter text will now wrap to multiple lines
    when the text gets long, rather than hiding parts of the string.

  * The online help and other Help-menu itmes are now top-level views,
    which should make them somewhat more usable. (Closes: #434349)

  * Support for the "Breaks" field and for trigger states (thanks to
    Michael Vogt and Ian Jackson for patches and prodding).
    (Closes: #438543)

  * Two new styles, "PkgDowngraded" and "PkgDowngradedHighlighted",
    are provided to control how downgraded packages look.  By default
    these packages look like any other installed package.
    (Closes: #434442)

  * aptitude can now display homepage URLs stored in the Homepage
    field of packages.

There are bug-fixes too, but those aren't as fun. So instead I think I'll include some diffstat output. Everyone likes diffstat!

seems like you got a bug number wrong:

434442 points to sysstat
