The interesting thing is that the pkgtool now supports new formats other than tgz. The new supported formats are .tbz, .tlz, and .txz. I don't know for now what's the purpose of those formats and what's inside it, but we will know it when it's time.
Here are the latest -Current changelog:
Mon Apr 13 16:22:12 CDT 2009
a/coreutils-7.2-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to coreutils-7.2. Added new file formats to /etc/DIR_COLORS.
The huge kernels were rebuilt to remove the crashing i2o_dpt driver (i2o_block is provided as the replacement driver), and to add three Realtek wireless drivers that are part of the CONFIG_STAGING driver collection.
These are considered experimental, but are probably better than nothing.
