Arch Linux's posts

The Vim suite of packages has been reorganized to better provide advanced features in the standard vim package, and to split the CLI and GUI versions; the new packages are:

* vim-minimal: identical to the previous vim package
* vim: now includes all the features from gvim which includes the python, lua, and ruby interpreters, without GTK/X support
* vim-python3: same as the above for gvim-python3
* gvim: same as before
* gvim-python3: same as before
* vim-runtime: same as before

We're at #FrOSCon! Meet us in room C125.

Xorg .1.15 has hit our testing repository. Happy testing and bug reporting!

In the interest of not dividing the Arch Linux community on Google+, we've decided to select the "Arch Linux" community as the official one.

The "Arch Linux Users" community will be deleted shortly.

End of initscripts support

As systemd is now the default init system, Arch Linux is receiving minimal testing on initscripts systems. Due to a lack of resources and interest, we are unlikely to work on fixing initscripts-specific bugs, and may close them as WONTFIX.

We therefore strongly encourage all users to migrate to systemd as soon as possible. See the systemd migration guide.

To ease the transition, initscripts support will remain in the official repositories for the time being, unless otherwise stated. As of January 2013, we will start removing initscripts support (e.g., rc scripts) from individual packages without further notice.

Hi all,
the new #KDE major release[1] has been moved to [extra].
Read the upstream changelog for the new features/bug fixes.

The KDE Multimedia development has been moved to git. As consequence of this, 
the kdemultimedia-kioslave package has been removed and split into:
* kdemultimedia-audiocd-kio
* libkcddb
* libkcompactdisc

Every maintainer of the packages depending on the -kioslave package should 
check the dependencies.

Also libkipi, libkexiv2 and libdcraw packages have a soname bump, 
respectively: -> -> ->
The packages in the official repos have been rebuilt.

The kdesdk-kdeaccounts-plugin, kdesdk-kdepalettes and kdeutils-ksecrets 
packages have been removed.

Have a nice update!
