This time again we had more than 80 unique contributors! I'm very happy
to see so many "new" people next to the "oldtimers". It was also a very
busy cycle with close to 1200 commits and changes all over the tree.

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Architecture: Powerpc64 BE/LE added, AVR32 deprecated.
   Improved altivec / SPE /atomic instructions handling. Additional
   PowerPC CPU variants added.

 - Defconfigs: Atmel SAMA5D3, Congatec QMX6, Lego ev3, TS-5x00,
   qemu-system-xtensa, qemu-aarch64-virt added. A number of tweaks to
   existing ones. lpc32xx defconfigs removed.

 - Toolchain: Microblaze support for internal musl toolchain.
   Default to GCC 4.8 for internal toolchain, remove deprecated 4.3 and
   4.6 versions.
   External CodeSourcery / Linaro toolchain updates, option to copy
   gconv libraries for external toolchains.

 - Infrastructure: graph-depends: misc fixes, transitive dependencies
   are not drawn by default. Download handling is now done using helper
   scripts. Integrity of downloads can now be verified using sha*
   hashes. Subversion download now uses peg revisions for robustness.

   Legal-info: License info of local or overridden packages are saved as
   well. Toolchain packages are also taken into account.
   autotools: Static linking with libtool / v1.5 improvements.
   Gettextize support, similar to autoreconf.

   kconfig package infrastructure added.

 - Large number of new packages (64):
   Multimedia: imx-vpu, libglew, libglu, libmpdclient, libva,
   libva-intel-driver, ncmpc, opencore-amr, sox, twolame
   Perl extensions: perl-datetime-tiny, perl-gd, perl-gdgraph,
   perl-gdtextutil, perl-io-socket-ssl, perl-json-tiny, perl-mojolicious,
   perl-net-ssleay, perl-path-tiny, perl-try-tiny, perl-xml-libxml,
   perl-xml-namespacesupport, perl-xml-sax, perl-xml-sax-base,
   Python extensions: python-cffi, python-daemon, python-flup,
   python-ipython, python-numpy
   Networking: flickcurl, geoip, linux-zigbee, sshpass, whois
   Misc: gnupg2, kexec-lite, memcached, patchelf, ..

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 2014.08 is released.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
