The state of the 0.9.4 release

Alec Leamas
Hi out there!

0.9.4 has been out for 10 days. During this time a few problems have
been found and fixed. There are patches available in the release-0_9_4
branch, see list below. One affects parallel builds, the rest are
corner-cases for specific drivers or options.

The debian source package [1] has been updated to 0.9.4-2.1 with the
most urgent patches added.

The Ubuntu PPA [3] has been updated to 0.9.4-2.1.

The fedora packages at copr [2] been updated with the same patches to
0.9.4-4. The build fails  on ppc, but is otherwise (i386, amd64) OK. The
ppc build error is for now assumed to be a COPR problem.

I'm still trying to push the debian packaging into the official repos.
However, this is a very complicated process; don't hold your breath.

The official Fedora builds are delayed since I don't get in contact with
the Fedora libirman maintainer - the libirman and lirc updates needs to
be coordinated. As of now I'm not particularly worried about this. In
the meantime, use the COPR builds.
