Thanks, but please merge the patch bumping the version with the one
adding the hash file as well.

Are you sure no other changes are needed? From the NEWS file I see:

Major new feature:

- task-manager (must be enabled explicitly)

  The task manager allows to automatically distribute rendering tasks over
  multiple cpu and/or gpu cores. There is an implementation for the generic
  (software) driver which can be configured with by setting software-cores=<n>
  and task-manager options in the directfbrc.

Merged Projects:
- DirectFB-extra (missing bits)
- SaWMan
- FusionDale
- FusionSound
- DiVine
- ++dfb

So I was expecting to see an option to enable the task manager support
and dropping of the sawman package?

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
