Hi folks,
  Yum 3.2.23 is available. Yet more bugfixes and a fair number of new 
items:


- downgrade command - you can now run (in a limited sense) downgrades. 
It's not guaranteed to depsolve properly but if you specify the pkgs 
properly it should download and work. Useful for reverting a broken 
upgrade pkg. But don't try reverting a whole distro update. Chances are 
LOW that it will work for you.

- yumdb - this is a separate, simple-text "database" of information about 
each package that you install/update. Specifically information like what 
repo a package was installed from, why it was installed, etc, etc. More 
things will be added here as we progress. Right now, if you install a pkg 
you can see what repo it came from in yum info pkgname output.

You can see all the news in the changelog:
