Slackwarearm-current ChangeLog (2016-07-08)

Fri Jul 8 19:20:21 UTC 2016

If you are still syncing from this tree, please switch over to the 14.2
tree for security updates. The “current” tree will have its content
wiped out from the mirrors in a few weeks' time.

I already have the hard float port bootstrapped, and if I release it
I need to have people who are using the soft float port already
switched over to the 14.2 tree: The hard float packages are ABI
incompatible with the 14.2 (and previous “current”) packages – updating
to them will destroy your OS! It therefore seems prudent to remove
the -current tree and cause people's scripts to break so that they
take note.

The port isn't in any way ready to release, but I have a build machine
busy for the next few weeks!
