  • fix #636: support --ignore-bases option for project listings. Requires devpi-server >= 5.0.0 to work, older versions will still include releases from bases.
  • decoupled the functional tests from devpi-server and run devpi-server in a Python 3 virtualenv when testing with Python 2.7.
  • support --no-projects option when showing indexes and use it automatically when creating and modifying and index. Requires devpi-server >= 5.0.0 to work, older versions will still receive and show the projects.
  • sort output of index -l, use -l and user -l.
