The freshly released rpm-4.12.90 aka rpm-4.13.0-alpha is going to hit
rawhide soon. The two major new features are:

 * Boolean (aka rich) dependencies to support more complicated relation
between packages
 * File Triggers - run scripts if files get installed in given paths -
possibly to replace most of the regular - per package - scriptlets at
some point in the future.

But for now and for Fedora this update is more about testing and
stabilizing the many smaller changes as far as they have not been ported
back already.
