Paludis 0.26.0_alpha5 has been released:

    * STILL BROKEN, wait for 0.26.0 if you use these: CRAN, Ruby
      bindings for dep list.

    * Various switches now support --no-, for negation.

    * paludis, inquisitio --show-authors.

    * {keywords,licenses,use}.conf can now contain single- or double-
      quoted tokens.

    * paludis --install --pretend will show how many bytes still need
      to be downloaded for a given package to be installed. Two new
      metadata keys, size_of_download_required and size_of_all_distfiles,
      have been added.

    * Some merger improvements were implemented: try to merge by
      renaming a parent directory or merging each file separately. If a
      copy is needed, merge to a temporary file and then rename to the
      real destination.

    * Symlink rewriting is now part of the merger and is
      EAPI-configurable. All EAPIs known to paludis allow symlink
      rewriting except exheres-0.

    * Rather than spawning a second paludis instance, has_version etc
      in ebuilds now communicate back to the original Paludis process
      through a pipe.

    * Paludis will now work with Bash 3.2_p20 and later (gentoo#190128).
