Release Notes: This release fixes several bugs in the compression/decompression code. Large packages or packages with the "wrong" size would break because of return code mishandling. A deconfiguration prerm script is run and the status is set as expected ("Unpackged"). Several fixes have been made to the libexpr library. This release is made using the libraries available as DLL/.so so one can use them in their software as such instead of using the archives. It fixes handling of many fields in the control file. You are strongly encouraged to upgrade if you were using 0.7.1 or older.
Release Notes: This release fixed bz2 compression and ar creation for large packages. The memfile maximum size is now 1Gb instead of 128Mb. A check was added for empty ar filenames. The lzma and xz tests were fixed so that such files can be added to data.tar.gz. Many dependency tests were fixed. --output-dir and --output-filename options were added for --install. Pre-configurations are now done as expected. --root was fixed so that a full path is always used. Several --remove bugs were fixed. Several installation definitions in CMakeLists.txt were fixed.
