Not sure how critical that is, but 6.1 defaults to C++14 especially since -current is on GCC 5.3.

Don't pay attention to my request. I just couldn't resist to post it :^)
You have destroyed my joy by asking reasonable question

Don't get me wrong, i would like to see 6.x in /testing, but the differences from 5.3 to 6.1 are for sure not a "minor update". 6.1 in testing might be helpful for packages that requires a newer GCC version (there are already packages that don't build fine on stock 14.1 because of the mature GCC). Would be nice to have at least a testing package for GCC >= 6.0 on -current.

I didn't get you wrong. I just though it was a good idea to request the newest GCC, since somebody had to it
Although we all know it is not going to enter the -current and we all are happy with that
Anyways, it's interesting idea to have GCC 6.x in /testing.

A new OpenSSL release will come out in a few days.

Quote:
These releases will be made available on 3rd May 2016 between approximately
1200-1500 UTC. They will fix several security defects with maximum severity
"high".

It would probably be wise to wait and release 14.2 after that date. :P

Well.... .... might as well wait 8 more days until 7 May and make it exactly
2-1/2 years since the release of 14.1.

The installation script doesn't detect EFI partition on an NVMe disk. (If such disks became popular this could be a problem for 14.2, IMHO). In my concrete case I was able to fix the installation script, so hopefully it's an easy problem in general case. Namely, I installed the fresh -current to the Intel PCIe P3600 NVMe (Add-In Card) using usbboot.img (UEFI installation, of course). initrd.img (inside usbboot.img) contains a script /usr/lib/setup/SeTEFI which determines the EFI partition:
Code:
# Scan for EFI partitions:
for drive in sda sdb sdc sdd sde sdf sdg sdh sdi sdj sdk sdl sdm sdn sdo sdp ; do
We see that the script even doesn't try to search for an nvme disk. I changed this line to:
Code:
for drive in nvme0n1 ; do
Next goes the command that computes the number of the EFI partition and attach it to the disk name. In NVMe case the number should be prepended with letter "p", so I changed
Code:
cho /dev/$drive$(expr $(echo "$efisp" | cut -b 1-4)) >> $TMP/SeTefipartitions
to
Code:
echo /dev/"$drive"p$(expr $(echo "$efisp" | cut -b 1-4)) >> $TMP/SeTefipartitions
After these two changes the installation was absolutely smooth.
