Slackwarearm-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-04-01)

Mon Apr 1 18:13:44 UTC 2013


More updates, and several rebuilds due to bumped library versions in
the boost, icu4c, ilmbase, imagemagick, libzip, and net-snmp packages.
Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger for several of these library bumps, and to
Robby Workman for the initial work on lots of the updates in this batch.
The big news here is the removal of MySQL in favor of MariaDB. This
shouldn't really be a surprise on any level. Thanks are due to Heinz
Wiesinger for his work on transitioning the build script, testing, and
getting us all behind this move.

In the vast majority of situations, MariaDB is entirely compatible with
existing MySQL databases and will drop right in with no changes required.
There's an article available outlining the areas in which MariaDB differs
from MySQL that I'd recommend reading:
https://kb.askmonty.org/v/mariadb-versus-mysql-compatibility/
Thanks to the MariaDB Foundation! We look forward to working with you.

GCC 4.8.0 has been added to /extra rather than the main tree. This is
because GCC 4.8.0 has not been able to produce a bootable Kernel here.
I tried reverting to the previous version of binutils and applying the
latest SVN branch update, but to no avail – so for now we're sticking
with GCC 4.7.2.
