Default Daily Insecurity Output

Each morning Charlie Root mails out a daily insecurity output, part of which consists of a list of package list changes.
As explained, - means old, + means new but what does it mean when items are listed without plus or minus signs? Also, what do the @@ symbols signify?
I realize this is a minor point but it annoys me when I don't understand something so obviously simple.


Package list changes (-OLD  +NEW)
