5.1.0         - Add new --overwrite option and deprecate --force. This accepts a
                glob pattern with far more control than the widely abused force
                option which mostly just causes issues (FS#31549)
              - Add new --sysroot option and deprecate --root. This uses the
                guest configuration instead of the host configuration, which is
                what most people erroneously thought --root would do
              - introduce a 'disable-download-timeout' option
              - remove contrib - this is now maintained in a separate project
              - report the owner of an existing file, if any, when erroring out
                on a file conflict
              - resolve cyclic dependencies when calculating unneeded dependency
                trees (FS#41031)
              - report the needed command to download missing databases for the
                -F and -S actions
              - don't error if -Qo cannot find the file it is querying on disk
                (FS#55856)
              - support new-style OpenPGP format packets lengths
              - support EDDSA from gpgme 1.7.0
              - fix continuously trying to open invalid databases and reporting
                excessively excessive redundant error messages excessively
              - fix the download callback erroneously reporting itself too many
                times with --noprogressbar, or reporting inaccurate times for
                small files (FS#56408, FS#56468)
              - fix erroneous negative speed in download progressbar (FS#43434)
              - parse stdin as newline-separated instead of whitespace-separated
                (FS#52992)
              - when printing urls in the package cache, print the file url
                instead (FS#15868)
              - add color to group selection dialogs and -{F,Q}o
              - the -Q option now respects provides (FS#20650)
              - remove notification of system upgrade when only printing URLs
              - print replacements when using -Sup (FS#35812)
              - fix -Qk and -r checking for the root prefix twice (FS#48563)
              - Do not recognize # as a comment unless it is at the beginning of
                a line. This allows using it as a value in ini files (FS#48702)
              - ignore comments when examining INSTALL files (FS#51916)
              - match multi-byte user input properly (FS#47992)
              - abort transactions if even one database fails to sync (FS#47599)
              - do not resolve uid/gid to names when extracting files with -r
              - --dbonly now properly extracts metadata files (FS#52052)
              - remove support for internal checksumming implementations, and
                require at least one of openssl or nettle to exist
              - consider provides to satisfy optdepends when warning for removal
                or logging new optdepends during a transaction, as was already
                the case for -Qi
              - -Dk now reports if it is successful (FS#50087)
              - consider version for optdepends (FS#44957)
              - remove vim modelines in favor of EditorConfig
              - implement pacman-conf, a new tool to safely parse pacman.conf,
                and use it in internal scripts
              - bash completion now completes -Qn
              - various small documentation updates
              - makepkg:
                - Reproducible build support. makepkg now respects environment
                  SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when creating package metadata, and unifies
                  source file timestamps to match
                - add more info to .BUILDINFO to aid in reproducing the build
                  environment of a package
                - it is now possible to check the signature of VCS sources
                  (currently only git is supported)
                - use informative exit codes when exiting with errors (FS#54204)
                - lint_pkgbuild has vastly improved linting of pkgname and
                  variables that can contain pkgname/pkgver (FS#57833)
                - implement linting for makepkg.conf
                - fix using libmakepkg in external scripts without extglob
                - fix handling of configurable directories e.g. PKGDEST to align
                  with their documented behavior, and consistently check that
                  they can be used (FS#43537)
                - parseopts, srcinfo, and integrity are now part of libmakepkg
                - consistently use coreutils for checksumming instead of openssl
                  (which may be replaced by nettle in pacman)
                - lint build_references now prints affected filenames (FS#31558)
                - lint_package can now abort on fatal packaging errors
                - lint_package now checks for filenames with newline characters
                - lint_package now checks for root-level /.dotfiles
                - debug packages are now per pkgbase, not per pkgname
                - debug packages now contain source files to allow the debugger
                  to step through code
                - remove optipng and upx support - these can now be plugged into
                  libmakepkg
                - fix emptydirs support with newer findutils (FS#48515)
                - ignore architecture for --printsrcinfo
                - makepkg --printsrcinfo now correctly lists depends_$CARCH
                  instead of merging this into depends
                - fix bug in is_array that broke packages with arch-dependent
                  sources only (FS#48340)
                - move package signing outside of fakeroot which is incompatible
                  with recent gnupg versions (FS#49946)
                - makepkg --clean now cleans up logfiles (FS#51039)
                - when using $PKGDEST, do not symlink build artifacts into
                  current directory
                - --packagelist now lists the built filenames, rather than all
                  possible basenames without extensions
                - fix --geninteg not properly ignoring renamed signature files
                - use localized date strings
                - ensure sane umask is set both before and after installing deps
                - adapt to file(1) changes in order to continue to strip PIE
                  executables
              - repo-add:
                - don't recreate the database when only verifying signature
                  (FS#48085)
                - fix error when repo directory path contains spaces (FS#50285)
              - pacman-key:
                - reject armored signatures
                - don't set a default keyserver, deferring to gpg's sane default
                - disable scdaemon as we don't use it and it breaks --lsign when
                  a smartcard is plugged into the machine
              - vercmp:
                - remove duplicate, undocumented --usage option
                - fail when the wrong number of arguments are used (FS#49093)

                software (FS#42444)
              - the package description output (-Si ,-Qi) is now correctly
                aligned regardless of locale (FS#43983, FS#45997)
              - ensure internal package version matches database version after
                downloading (FS#45687)
              - improved signal handling and lock file removal (FS#45995,
                FS#46375, FS#47011)
              - print more information when encountering dependency errors
              - improved configuration parsing with a new ini parser
              - handle a symlink to a directory being replaced by a directory
              - The 'pkgbase' variable is now recorded in the local package db
              - Remove support for ".pacorig" files.  Instead, packages files
                are extracted as a ".pacnew" and the original stays in place
              - prevent install scriptlets using stdin for user interaction
              - provides are considered when displaying optdepends install
                status (FS#36412)
              - always update corrupt database whether or not a newer version
                is found on the remote server
              - fix build issues when libarchive was in a non-standard location
              - Many issues found using Coverity were address (primarily freeing
                memory on error conditions)
              - The pactest suite was upgraded to allow parallel testing using
                the tap.sh library
              - makepkg:
                - makepkg is in the process of being split into a library. This
                  allows various areas to be extended by adding a file into
                  libmakepkg (e.g. package/PKGBUILD checking, adjusting
                  files before creating the final package).
                - PKGBUILD variables checked to be arrays or not as appropriate
                - pkgver() and prepare() are now run with --noextract (FS#43498,
                  FS#46800)
                - the ability to build a single package in a PKGBUILD has been
                  removed
                - the output when checking checksums for architecture specific
                  sources is improved (FS#43444)
                - improved handling of bazaar sources (FS#43448)
                - fix source package signing with SRCPKGDIR set
                - add option to compress png images with optipng
                - add --packagelist option, which lists all packages build from
                  a PKGBUILD
                - add --printsrcinfo flag to print SRCINFO file for a PKGBUILD
                - record build information in a .BUILDINFO file
                - add whirlpool to list of hashing options (FS#45859)
              - makepkg-template:
                - support multiple --template-dir
                - added a testsuite
              - repo-add:
                - Always generate the .files database
                - Only update database if the entire operation succeeds
                - unarmored package signatures are rejected
              - contrib:
                - checkupdates: give error when fakeroot is missing
                - checkupdates: provide packages versions in output
                - checkupdates: fix failure in some locales (FS#40405)
                - paccache: Add -q/--quiet
                - pacdiff: do not require DIFFPROG for -o/--output (FS#46184)
                - zsh_completion: updated to fix many missing options
