Slackware-current ChangeLog (2020-12-07)

Mon Dec 7 21:49:58 UTC 2020

Goodbye vtown… we hardly knew you.
It is indeed the day of the Big Merge™ leaving nothing left in /testing (but
I'll try to work on that soon). In addition to merging packages from /testing,
Qt4 and related packages have gone away, along with some other libraries that
were only used by KDE4. Perhaps someone will want to take up maintenance of Qt4
(but I'm also pretty sure that SBo wouldn't touch that build script with a ten
foot pole). ConsoleKit2 is gone, replaced by elogind (which also takes over for
cgmanager and pm-utils).
Huge thanks to Eric Hameleers, Heinz Wiesinger, and Robby Workman for all the
help making this possible.
There's still more cleanup to do here, but that'll be easier with everything in
the main tree instead of maintaining side installs running the /testing
packages.
I'll look into what can be done about extra/pure-alsa-system/ soon.
Enjoy! :-)
