Mid June Updates

More than 2 weeks since i gave an update to -current development and things are going more interesting in -current branch. It stays up-to-date with latest changes upstream while keeping the stability standards high. Here's some highlight in the last two weeks:
  • Kernel: Upgraded to 4.9.31
  • Firefox: Upgraded to 52.2.0ESR release
  • Thunderbird: Upgraded to 52.2.0 release and switched to GTK+3
  • NetworkManager: Upgraded to 1.8.0
  • sqlite: Upgraded to 3.19.3
  • bind: Upgraded to 9.11.1_P1
  • gnupg2: Upgraded to 2.1.21
  • gpgme: Upgraded to 1.9.0 (drop libgpgme-pthread support)
  • pth -> npth replacement
  • dirmngr removal (included in latest gnupg2)
  • samba: Upgraded to 4.6.5
  • glew: Upgraded to 2.0.0
  • irssi: Upgraded to 1.0.3
  • libdrm: Upgraded to 2.4.81
  • mesa: Upgraded to 17.1.2
  • gdb: Upgraded to 8.0
  • sane: Upgraded to 1.0.27
  • alsa-lib: Upgraded to 1.1.4.1
  • cmake: Upgraded to 3.8.2
  • mutt: Upgraded to 1.8.3
Due to the changes in the gnupg2 package, some startup scripts might need a little tweak. It dropped some options, so you might need to look up your scripts. Also i found an annoying message about smart card detection every time you sign a file using gpg2. I have notified Patrick about this and send him upstream patch to supress those messages. Let's just wait for the decision.
