This time we had more than 70 unique contributors! I'm very happy to see
so many "new" people next to the "oldtimers". It was again a very busy
cycle with more than 800 commits and changes all over the tree.

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Large number of new packages (41): Mostly networking related: aiccu,
   autossh, igmpproxy, iputils, knock, libssh2, p910nd, snmppp and
   tcping, Python libraries: python-crc16, python-ipy, python-pyzmq and
   the new components of Qt 5.1: qt5sensors, qt5serialport, qt5x11extras

 - Infrastructure: Make 3.82 ordering fixes, locales generation fixes,
   CVS download support, post-rsync hooks, improvements to legal-info

 - GCC 4.8.2. Glibc support for the internal toolchain, a number of
   upstream uClibc fixes has been backported. Support for external
   toolchains using musl. Updated Linaro external toolchains. Fortran
   and objective-C support deprecated, mudflap support

 - Nios-II architecture support, a number of fixes to MIPS architecture

 - New defconfigs: cubieboard2, freescale i.MX 6sololite evk, sabre-sd,
   wandboard added, rpi renamed to raspberrypi_defconfig

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 2013.11 is released.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
