Hi folks & @testers!
as been quite some time that the core didn’t recevied a proper update.
I decided to start with glib2, but during the upgrade process I added boost and python3 to the list.
That was a huge job, more then 413 packages are now up to date.
The main group are:
- glib2 2.46.2 -> glib2 2.54.1
- boost-1.63.0 -> boost-1.65.0
- python3-3.5.4 -> python3-3.6.2
I saw that a lot of our packages has been build the “Arch way”, it means that the default name of the compiled program is without any designation (3 for python3 or 2 for python2). The problem is that we have mixed packages, some with the designation ‘3’ and some without, is a mess honestly, for us and for the users.
@team we should define if we want to continue that way or set python3 the default interpreter. The latter is IMHO the long therm solution, were we allign our py packages to the Arch approatch. That would semplify our maintenance work. In fact almost 99% of the py packages does not contains any Chakra customizations, and usually they does not depends on gtk at all.
chakra-check-links and indentify any wrong reference to libboost or glib2. Notify in this thread the faulty package. Thank you!
