-- slapt-get 0.10.1
This release features the following changes:
    * fixed an initialization errror in slapt_is_required_by() that caused a segfault when
removing with --no-deps.
    * if no package sources are defined with a priority, disable use of priorities when dealing
with /patches. This prevents the previous default slapt-get behavior from changing and causing
confusion. With priorities, /patches is always assigned +1 above the package sources priority.
So if no priorities were in use then anything found in any sources /patches always trumped
anything else. This is probably the most correct behavior but it is still unexpected for
existing users. To get the correct behavior, assign a priority to one or more sources.
    * reordered priorities to "default < official < preferred < custom" as this seems to be
more intuitive. Having preferred less than official is confusing.

-- gslapt 0.5.1
This release features the following changes:
    * determine possible downgrades even with respect to priorities and allow the package
action menu to provide a downgrade option
    * better status labels in the package description when upgrading, installing, reinstalling,
and dowgrading packages
    * updated for libslapt 0.10.1 compatibility
    * use the actual file extension when printing the package name while downloading
    * fixed the show upgradeable view to account for package priorities
