	  more than 1 repositories to retrieve packages from.

147 148 149

	  those that should be propagated to the user through the monitoring
165 166 167

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
174 175 176
	* Use environment variables instead of input options to pass sensitive
	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
177

178 179 180 181
2012-09-15, v0.6
	* Fix import and export scripts
	* Add new config_url os parameter. This can be used by snf-image to
	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
182 183
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
184
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.
185

186 187 188 189 190 191

	* Abandon timelimit command in favor of timeout
192

	* HELPER: Add a new progress monitoring mechanism

	  programm will be used if --with-progress-monitor flag is used in
	  configure or if PROGRESS_MONITOR variable in the defaults file has a
	  non-empty value
	* Remove --enable-pithos-backend option in configure. This will be
	  detected at runtime
	* Create package list in snf-update-helper every time debootstrap is
	  performed. If a cache file is found, snf-update-helper will use this
	  list to determine if it is OK to use this cache file or not.
