New Changes

There are some new changes in the latest -Current batch of updates. Two new tools are introduced while one package is being removed (replaced exactly). The first new package is cpufrequtils, which is used to control how your CPU manage their frequencies. The second package is geeqie which replaced gqview. This package is brought into -Current because gqview is no longer maintained by the developers. I still prefer gwenview which is integrated with KDE for my personal image viewer thumbs up

Some packages gets rebuilt to fix some problems, such as Mesa, xdm and bash-completion. Now bash-completion works with txz packages, so you no longer have to use * wildcard when working with txz formats. Other packages gets a lift up, such as libraries.

Here are the latest -Current changelog:
