I've just pushed a new version of *cblrepo*, it's now at 0.9.0. There
are two major changes:
- Use of *aeson* for the database, which means the database format has
changed quite a bit. Use `cblrepo convertdb` to convert from the
- The library *optparse-applicative* has replaced *cmdargs* for
command line parsing. I believe there aren't any major changes to
the command line options, but there are 2 minor things:
1. *cmdargs* allows writing partial sub-command names and accepts
them as long as the portion written is unambiguous,
*optparse-applicative* is more strict and requires the full names
to be used.
2. The help format has changed slightly.
I don't think either change is very likely to cause issues for
The HABS database has already been updated to the new format.

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
