Contributions to Mageia – August 2013

Mageia.Org

Back to my contributions and Mageia 4 alpha 1 is already out shipping a lot of new stuff  o/

Give it a try!    Provala!

 MAINTAINED PACKAGES – MAGEIA 3

UPDATED PACKAGES – CAULDRON

  • yaflight
  • yalib
  • yainstall
  • libtorrent-rasterbar 0.16.11
  • qupzilla

yaflight, yainstall and their shared library -yalib- have been ported to the Qt5 framework on Mageia o/

The upgrade of libtorrent-rasterbar to its latest version required qbittorrent to be rebuilt against it while qupzilla was in need of some love only.

TRANSLATIONS

Some web pages were updated (look at http://www.mageia.org/langs/report.php) and some blog post was also translated.

ONLINE DOCUMENTATION

I managed to fix some minor bugs into the online documentation for the Mageia Installer (bug mga#10237).

UIABSTRACTION4MCC – ADMINPANEL

Our efforts to port drakxtools to a modern abstraction layer, libyui, continue. While anaselli concentrates on libyui-mga, I’m focusing on admin panel and the way it is going to be able to acquire root privileges using different authentication backends.

Thanks

Stay tuned and see you next month for a new summary of my contributions to Mageia.
