Dear aurweb contributors and users,

aurweb 4.5.0 has just been released.

You will notice that after logging in, the home page is now replaced by
a dashboard which shows your flagged packages and your recent package
requests, followed by a list of your packages. There also is a list of
packages you co-maintain which hopefully makes co-maintainers' lives
easier. Moreover, co-maintainers of packages now receive out-of-date

In your account settings, you can now specify a timezone which will be
used to format dates and times throughout the whole aurweb interface.

The most notable internal improvements were made in password security.
The minimum password length was bumped to 8 characters. Passwords are
now hashed using bcrypt instead of MD5. The conversion from MD5 to
bcrypt is done automatically when logging in. We thus recommend to log
out of the aurweb interface and log in again.

There were also improvements to the SSH interface, including new
commands to vote for packages and flag packages out-of-date.

For a comprehensive list of changes, please consult the Git log [2]. As
usual, bugs should be reported to the aurweb bug tracker [3].
