Once again, a healthy mix of new people and "oldtimers". It has been a
busy cycle with almost 800 commits (even more than 2012.11!) and a
number of large scale changes.

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Large number of new packages (66): Jamvm/Classpath reintroduced,
   Development packages (flashbench, perf, ..), QEMU related packages,
   Multimedia (dvdsnoop, gst-fsl-plugins, jpeg-turbo, tvheadend, yavta,
   ..), Raspberry PI support packages, various firmware packages.

 - Infrastructure: Eclipse integration support. Option to set root
   password. Post-image scripts support, similar to post-build.
   Generalized *-config script handling.

 - GDB 7.51, Crosstool-NG 1.17.0, Linaro ARM 2012.11/12 + 2013.01,
   Sourcery CodeBench MIPS 2012.03/09. Infrastructure to warn about
   missing 32bit support for toolchains. Binary toolchain wrapper is now

 - ARM NEON support toggle. OABI deprecated. Cortex A5/A15 support.

 - Defconfigs: Calao USB-A9260, snowball, QEMU PPC440 on ML507 board,
   QEMU ARM Exynos4210.

And the usual package version updates and bug fixes. See the CHANGES
file for details:


Like usual, I will now create a next branch and start merging in new
features, rather than wait until 2013.02 is released.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
