Pacman 2.5 Released

The latest version of our beloved package manager was released this afternoon. Here are some of the more attractive changes:

  • Increase in package load times
  • Added an URL tag to package info
  • Added a DBPath option in pacman.conf
  • Added the --nodeps option to -S so you can use pacman to (only) download packages, using -Swd
  • Better lock handling, so you can --query while an --upgrade is running
