Crashes and serious errors:
Make the safe resolver not explode exponentially when new Recommendations are present.
The root cause here was that the
mandatemechanism the safe resolver uses to ensure that it progresses monotonically towards a solution didn't work in the presence of Recommends, so the resolver ended up exploring the entire space of possible resolutions to packages' Recommendations. This is the as large as the power set of the list of recommendations, hence the exponential behavior. (Closes: bug #474680)
Don't crash if a package's Section is empty. (Closes: bug #474115)
Cosmetic and UI bugs:
why installedinformation display in the package list will now display an informative message when no package is selected, the same way that the
related dependenciesdisplay does.
why installedinformation display should work better for newly installed packages now.
prints more information about the libraries it was compiled against.
prints a correct copyright date now.
