Tue May 21 08:38:12 UTC 2013

  • a/file-5.14-x86_64-1.txz
    Use magic.mgc instead of the flat magic files.
  • n/yptools-2.14-x86_64-1.txz
    Upgraded to yp-tools-2.14, ypbind-mt-1.37.1, and ypserv-2.31.
    Patched for new glibc crypt(). Thanks to mancha.
  • x/wqy-zenhei-font-ttf-0.8.38_1-noarch-2.txz
    The package reverts to the 0.8.38 version due to reports that the newer
    version causes rendering issues with Japanese and Korean fonts. I've
    found many references to this issue online, and have yet to see any
    solution for it besides reverting or removing the wqy-zenhei-font-ttf
    package altogether. Some people have suggested dropping wqy-zenhei in
    favor of Droid Sans Fallback, but the glyph coverage is not as good with
    that font. Probably the best solution for now is to go back to the
    version that seems to work (with a patch to the .conf file for
    compatibility with recent versions of fontconfig).
