New version is in tree. Arch teams, please, stabilize.
Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2011-10-18 13:06:08 UTC
from various sources, I see all related to apple iOS, are you sure that also linux is affected?
Comment 3 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-18 13:14:28 UTC
I'm not sure, but I see no iOS mentioning in the official ChangeLog and thus I think it's better to be on the safe side.
Comment 4 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-10-18 17:12:22 UTC

Arch teams, please test and mark stable:
