2012-05-09 PHP updated to version 5.4
The gd extension has been built with webp support using the libvpx library.
Make sure to merge the changes of php.ini into your local copy; or probably easier: adjust the new php.ini to your needs. If you any encounter problems using the APC extension you may try the php-xcache package which has been added to the repository.
Last but not least: especially if you are running old scripts, make sure they do not rely on features like "Safe Mode" or "Magic Quotes". As these features were removed, an update to PHP 5.4 will result in serious security holes.
2012-05-13 netcfg 2.8.2 release
netcfg 2.8.2 has been moved to [core].
Connection types ending in -old, -dbus and -iproute are discontinued. Remove the suffix if you still have it: you didn’t need it.
Systemd is now supported for single profile, multiple profile, automatic wired and automatic wireless connections.
For your basic wifi needs, you can now use the bundled wifi-menu tool. It is a dialog based connection aid inspired by wifi-select.
Disconnecting an interface is no longer done through -i. The new parameter is -D. Reconnecting an interface is possible through -R.
2012-06-01 systemd-tools replaces udev
2012-06-01 – Dave Reisner
systemd and udev have been merged upstream. We will still ship them in separate packages. However, in order to keep things simple, udev will now be part of a package called systemd-tools. This package contains several other standalone tools which can be used without systemd. The astute reader will note that this also means the entirety of systemd is available in the core repository.
Please replace udev with systemd-tools when prompted. If you upgrade the linux package at the same time, you may see an error during initramfs creation that the udev hook is not found. After the upgrade completes, please rerun ‘mkinitcpio -p linux’ to ensure that a bootable image is created for the newly installed kernel.
