Pacman 4 has landed in core! Thanks to 24 contributors producing 893 commits,
you'll find many [new features][1]. The one explicitly worth calling out is gpg
signing. However, until the last few details regarding database signing and
keyring distribution are ironed out, this is disabled in pacman's default
config. If you're interested trying out package verification, please refer to
the documentation on the wiki about [pacman-key][2] or [Allan's blog post][3].

As always, please make sure to merge your pacnew files!
