DNF 0.4.17 Released

After a week’s development sprint we are back with a new version today.

It was an unfortunate side-effect of the refactorings in 0.4.15 that DNF users of the two last releases sometimes experienced crashes and garbled output during the download phases. This release contains a long list of fixes for those, along with extensions to help us chase similar problems in the future.

There are new API calls in the repo management department and a bug fixed that prevented many from using --cacheonly. Linking to the release notes.

Behind the scenes a lot of work is going into reimplementation of repo-pkgs command from Yum. With repo-pkgs, but also other commands, we are often having a hard time determining which subcommands are legacy and which are used/have use cases. Users’ insights on this problem would be welcome, i.e. we’d be really interested to know what you think is worth dropping and why.
