	* fixes chdir after building dependencies bug github #79 and #80 (David

	* introduces experimental support for plugins/hooks (#apw2014 in
	Salzburg; Andreas Koenig, Branislav Zahradnik)

	* do not check recursion on optional dependencies (Andreas Koenig)

	* address #95271: sanity check META.yml to contain a hash

        * upgrade from 2.05 to 2.09

Let me know if there is anything suspicious or something interesting
