* Tue Aug 03 2021 Ignaz Forster <>
  - Version 3.5.1
    - t-u: Disable status file generation by default
      The new experimental `status` command requires the availability of
      /etc/YaST2/control.xml, which is not present on all systems. Hide the

    - -drop-if-no-change option work on SLE Micro [bsc#1184529]
    - Use `tukit call` for up, dup and patch to allow resuming an update after
      zypper updated itself in the snapshot [bsc#1185226]
    - Fix obsolete output type messages in initrd [boo#1177149]

* Tue Mar 02 2021 Ignaz Forster <>
  - Version 3.2.0

* Fri Feb 12 2021 Ignaz Forster <>

    components to remove the intrinsic requirement for Zypper
* Wed Jan 27 2021 Ignaz Forster <>
  - Version 3.0.0
    - This release changes the internal structure, but should be
      identical to the previous release feature wise.
    - Major parts of the previous Bash only application have been
      rewritten in C++ with the goal to provide an API around
      transactions; the transactional-update script is using that
      new interface internally already, however the API should
      be considered experimental for now - if you are interested to
      use it, please notify us in
    - A new tool called "tukit" provides a C++ tool that can be
      wrapped by scripts to leverage the functionality. Please
      consider it experimental for now, the commands may still change.
    - Bugfixes:
    - Implement support for system offline update [boo#1180808]
    - Add statistics files to update environment [boo#1173282]
* Mon Nov 09 2020 Ignaz Forster <>

      will be visible in the next snapshot
    - When using --drop-if-no-change synchronize potential /etc changes with
      running system

    - The /etc state of the oldest active snapshot will be synchronized
      into the new snapshot to prevent ever growing overlays
    - Removed creation of /etc backup snapshots

      in old and new overlay after snapshot creation

      interactivity for zypper calls. For previously non-interactive calls (e.g.
      dup) these options makes it possible to pick the correct solution in case
      of conflicts or make sure that a script will never be stuck at an input
    - Add kured reboot support
