Once again, a healthy mix of new people and "oldtimers". Like the
previous cycle, this has again been a busy cycle with almost 800
commits and a number of large scale changes.

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Large number of new packages (84): Qt5, Wayland, Filesystem
   packages (exfat-utils, f2fs-tools, genimage, genpart, mtools, ..),
   Networking (aircrack-ng, crda, libwebsockets, mongoose, mongrel2,
   nmap, nodejs, openobex, openpgm, ussp-push, wireless-regdb,
   wireshark, ..)  and ZeroMQ packagees (cppzmq, czmq, filemq, zic,
   zyre), Javascript packages various others.

 - Infrastructure: Support for multiple OpenGL / ES / EGL / OpenVG
   providers, similar to how libjpeg / libjpeg-turbo is handled.
   Packages can now add system users.
   Package patch logic reworked as discussed during Febrary dev days:

 - GCC 4.6.4 / 4.7.3 / 4.8.0. Default is now 4.7. Crosstool-NG 1.18.0,
   Linaro ARM/Aarch64 2013.02/03, New external Microblaze toolchain.
   Internal Crosstool-NG backend is deprecated.

 - ARC and Blackfin architecture support, FLAT binary format for NOMMU.

 - ARM: Very Old CPU variants have been dropped, Faraday FA526/626 and
   Marvell PJ4 variants added.

 - Defconfigs: Atmel at91sam9g45m10ek, Freescale mpc8315erdb &
   p1010rdb, Armadeus apf27 / apf28, Openblocks A6, Raspberry pi,
   gnublin board

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 2013.05 is released.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
