[Slackbuilds-users] Updates - 20170408.1

Dear Willy and all,

Thanks for the updates. However, I have one issue to raise.

The updates and fixes to the packages should go through the maintainer. In
other words, if there is a bug/issue reported for a slackbuild which is not
sent to this mailing list but is mentioned in some other platforms (LQ in
this case), I believe it should first be brought to the attention of the
maintainer so that she has the option to fix it or, if someone else would
fix it, at least she would be informed about this. I think this is the
proper way.

For tuxguitar, in this batch of updates, there is such an issue that was
fixed without informing me. Although I follow this list, it was by chance
that I have found out the issue jsut browsing the list of updates because
it was mentioned in LQ and has never been announced here so that I would
have had the chance to remedy it. I think users of slackbuilds should be
encouraged to contact the maintainer, if this is not feasible, the
attention of the maintainer should be drawn to the forum thread post by
sending a notice to this list by others in SlackBuilds devel that notice
the issue which is raised elsewhere.

This is my humble suggestion.

Hi Folks

We have some interesting development this week:
- mathics now reached 1.0 and some deps were updated
- tuxguitar is now fixed for x86 users (reported from LQ)
- lots of updates in development and gis area
- webkit2gtk bumped to 2.16.0
- mscore -> MuseScore
- fixed nvidia-driver issue
- xen security fixes
- libreoffice bumped to 5.3.2 (binary repackaging only for now)
- libvirt bumped to 3.2.x
- GeoIP bumped to 1.6.10
- New script for Chromium-based browser (slimjet)
- wxGTK3 is now using latest 3.0 branch.
It was initially bumped for poedit 2.0, but turns out we can't bump
poedit to 2.0 due to newer boost requirement (1.60), but wxGTK3 3.0.2 is
quite old (released 2014), so it's a good time to grab the latest update
as it would beneficial for other applications/projects.

Here's even more interesting news for users:

we are also working on ffmpeg bump to sync with the one in
Slackware-Current. It's a work in progress and we would really
appreciate more user feedbacks and bug reports for non-working scripts.
We have fixed some scripts in our branches (see
user/<username>/ffmpeg-wip branches in cgit) and some have to be dropped
since it's no longer work with newer ffmpeg and it seems no patch is
available at this moment.

There's no definite timeline when will this work be merged into master
as we want to make sure that all scripts are working well with the new
ffmpeg. Let's just hope for next public update :)
