Hello,

dnf-0.3.2-1 is in Rawhide and F19 testing updates[1] since today.

The main thing is that on repo expire DNF now checks metalinks for new 
checksums and doesn't download the data again if the checksums match, 
just refreshes the local timestamps instead (how it works in Yum). So in 
theory and practice: saving some more bandwidth.

Handling of per-repo package exclusions was fixed and clarified. DNF 
respects excludes for all operations, not just for update and install as 
Yum does[2], I find this more intuitive.

Release Notes[3] contain the full list of changes and bugs fixed.

Also, libsolv was rebased to the latest version too (libsolv-0.3.0-1), 
it contains Michael Schroeder's fix to the colord resolving problem[4].
