Slackwarearm-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-01-13)

Sun Jan 13 16:06:46 UTC 2013


I have built the latest Mozilla packages for -current only, and placed them out of
the main tree here:

ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/unsupported/slackwarearm-current/packages

These are built for minimum target of 'armv6j'. I can only build these because
my '-current' build host is an ARMv7 machine with a hardware FPU. The build hosts
for the stable releases of Slackware ARM are ARMv5 machines, upon which these
packages cannot be built, thus cannot be maintained. Therefore, I will maintain
the Mozilla packages *only* for users who follow -current closely, but will no
longer provide any new Mozilla packages for any stable releases (apart from 13.37
which uses Firefox v3). The reason for moving the new versions of the packages
out of the main tree is because anything in -current ordinarily implies that it
will be present in the next stable release, which of course cannot happen if they
can't be built on the hardware used to maintain stable releases.
