Well, then we need an active syslinux extension maintainer, who also remembers to ping to update the various places from the new extension. :)

I realised that gtk2 and friends had a dep on the old libpng.

recompiled cairo and gdk-pixbuf2 uploaded to 5.x repo, pango and gtk2 still to do.

I would not recommend doing too much with gtk2 extensions until I update pango and gtk2

I feel terrible, I wish aussie beer was my excuse.

In fixing up 4.x wbar issue for epdfview, only just completed, I noticed I had a wbar config that "snuck" into 4.x for a package that was attempting to load a 64x64 icon.

I have now removed my bug report as it was false, and in reply number 19 removed all traces of mention of that wbar issue. Ditto later replies.

In some ways, I am glad I tried to test 5.x but it goes to show, that I am not ready to do any testing when I failed to test things correctly on 4.x
In case you think I am looking for some kind of "pls have a go", you are wrong as my mind is made up.

(I am surprised I can still see this typing after punching the monitor so hard)  :-[

I will send a pm to my "victim" and sacrifice a beer or two in his honour.

Some signicant changes in the 5.x repo:

jpeg replaced by libjpeg-turbo (deps for fltk and imlib2 will need adjusting)
graphics-libs-1 factored out into component libs (deps will need adjusting)
gtk2 and friends recompiled for tc-5.x (gir omitted until a final version of python is agreed upon)

I'd be willing to take up maintainership on the Syslinux extension.  I think the bigger change is to the build system/script.  I'd prefer to go with a straight binary extension or an installer rebuild rather than a full rebuild (yes, I've seen numerous issues with build system interactions generating broken binaries in the last 3 years I've been more involved with Syslinux and completely understand HPA's preference as expressed in syslinux.tar.xz:doc/distrib.txt; separating a bug from a negative build box interaction isn't fun, especially with newer GCCs over the last 2 years).

I'd also consider trying to make another extension for the latest release if there is interest from people that are more adventurous, especially with lwIP-based PXELINUX (lpxelinux.0) in Syslinux-5.10 (HTTP/FTP without gPXE/iPXE).

The remaining issue would be that either the extension would need to remain static for a major-version lifecycle or systems/scripts that generate remastered ISOs and bootable USB systems should utilize either binaries from the extension or binaries from the current boot system but not both within a given system/script.

Initial modularized Xorg libs up. Don't load them yet unless feeling adventurous.

Apps states during 'Check for Updates' that the latest release is 4.7.7.
