Pre Release of Mer

Jan 18, 2012

Hi all,

I have released a PRERELEASE of Mer, meaning that the latest/ symlinks
does not yet point to this release. The intended release date will be
late Friday 20 January 2012, hence the timestamp of 20120120 and that
final version will be 0.20120120.1 (or .2 or .3 depending on stability
issues to fix)

This release has been imported into COBS as Mer:fake:Core-next:*,
please test your projects against these and
the repository URLs under

If you find any bugs in this prerelease, please file a bug to as well as responding to this e-mail

Highlights of this release:

* Qt 4.8.0 final release
* Switch to --linker-hash-style=gnu which may help with getting faster
application startup, as the symbol lookups now are faster due to a
different hash method utilized
* Switch to DWARF-4 debug symbol format by standard, as an example,
this cuts Qt debug symbols from 314mb to 161mb compressed.
* meego-release is now called mer-release
* New packages: pm-utils, ca-certificates, alsa-utils, repomd-pattern-builder
* Several package updates

Expected changes after this prerelease:
* Pre-included kickstarter files and .ks generation for some generic
* Possibly qtwebkit 2.2.1 or 2.2.0

Full changelog:
