I believe our next targets will be the gtk+2 and gimp stuff that Robby's been testing. As far as optimizing LCD font display, I believe the Microsoft patents still prevent that so you'll have to make those changes yourself. I mean, don't do that, but if you do I take no responsibility for your actions.
Awesome, thanks for the info I dint think anything about pattens. Hats off to you all for all of the hard work.
Distribution: OpenSUSE 13.2 64bit-Gnome on ASUS U52F
Where can I get and how can I run AlienBOB's rsync script I am looking for update to the latest software
So, what was updated? The highlights of this batch are:
the version of the next release is known: it will be “Slackware 14″.
kernel is now 3.2.21 – we will likely stick with the 3.2 series since that will get long-term support.
KDE moved up to 4.8.4 (meaning that I can remove my own packages for that version from my ktown repository).
gcc was bumped to 4.7.1 to accompany the new kernel.
glibc was patched to fix a regression
python got updated to 2.7.3 (the switch from the old 2.6.x version meant that every package needed to be recompiled which depends on python)
the network scripts (rc.inet1) got support for setting up betwork bridges – something I use every day because it allows me to make my Virtual Machines accessible from other computers in my LAN.
lots of other individual updates (the complete ChangeLog.txt entry of “Mon Jun 25 05:17:48 UTC 2012” measures more than 300 lines)
