"* New command line utilities for spec queries (with much
   enhanced functionality), package signing, keyring operations
   and database maintenance"


"New command-line utilities

  - The keyring related operations of importing public keys and
    verifying package signatures have been split into a new "rpmkeys"
    cli utility

  - Package signing and signature deletion operations have been split
    into a new "rpmsign" cli utility (related to RhBug:624585) "


Removed features

  - Support for --sign during rpmbuild has been removed. Signing must
    be done as a separate step using the new "rpmsign" command.
