srcpac 0.10.8

Another 6 months have passed since the last srcpac release, and I’m again here to announce you the new srcpac 0.10.8!

This release improves the performances (the latter was very slow due to the many checks) and add the support to build dependencies and makedependencies of your targets. Also, two new options for the query and remove operations have been added and I rewrote the logic behind the split packages.

This release also add gettext support so translations are welcome! (There are very few lines to translate though).

Much more must be done; I hope you can help testing this release and proposing new features using our bug tracker.
