Samuel Holland (smaeul@) contributed a patch that fixes the pthread_getname_np function.


Improvements suggested by msiism have been merged into the Administrator’s Handbook.


Bobby Bingham (koorogi) has fixed many issues with libucontext on PowerPC computers. This work has allowed GCC Go to start up on 32-bit PowerPC! More work is necessary to ensure proper operation on both 32-bit and 64-bit PowerPC. We are very excited about the progress being made.


A. Wilcox (awilfox@) added a patch to GDB to fix lock-ups when the target process forks. Additionally, they added a package for wxWigets, added Raspberry Pi 3 support to easy-kernel, and fixed multiple issues with Mesa.

Kiyoshi Aman (aerdan@) bumped some packages, including Featherpad, ImageMagick, IRSSI, VIM, WeeChat, and XTerm. He also added packages for cxref and UUCP, and added smart card support to GnuPG.

Luis Ressel (aranea) added packages for nsd and RedShift, and added improvements to the easy-kernel build system.

Samuel Holland (smaeul@) bumped Rust to version 1.31.1.
