libucontext

An issue that could cause a crash on 32-bit Intel machines has been fixed. This fix is included in the libucontext 0.9.0 release; for more information, see the release announcement.

Packaging

Max Rees (sroracle@) updated the Nextcloud Client to 2.5.2.

A. Wilcox (awilfox@) added the z3 package for Clang. They also updated LLVM and Clang to version 8.0.0, and added the SPARC and WebAssembly targets to our LLVM package. They additionally fixed more bugs in GCC Go.

A. Wilcox (awilfox@) and Kiyoshi Aman (aerdan@) worked together to bump many of the desktop packages in Adélie Linux. Additionally, aerdan@ added a package for licensecheck, which allows for automation of code licensing audits.

General discussion

It’s finally here – GCC Go runs on all five architectures! 32-bit and 64-bit PowerPC, x86, and 64-bit ARM can now all run Go code. We thank awilfox@, koorogi, and the other brave porters who have made this possible.
