+propellor 0.8.0 released with [[!toggle text="these changes"]]
+[[!toggleable text="""
+ * Completely reworked privdata storage. There is now a single file,
+ and each host is sent only the privdata that its Properties actually use.
+ To transition existing privdata, run propellor against a host and
+ watch out for the red failure messages, and run the suggested commands
+ to store the privdata using the new storage scheme. You may find
+ it useful to run the old version of propellor to extract data from the old
+ privdata files during this migration.
+ Several properties that use privdata now require a context to be
+ specified. If in doubt, you can use anyContext, or
+ Context ""
+ * Add --edit to edit a privdata value in $EDITOR.
+ * Add --list-fields to list all currently set privdata fields, along with
+ the hosts that use them.
+ * Fix randomHostKeys property to run openssh-server's postinst in a
+ non-failing way.
+ * Hostname.sane now cleans up the localhost line in /etc/hosts,
+ to avoid eg, apache complaining "Could not reliably determine the
+ server's fully qualified domain name"."""]] \ No newline at end of file
