Recent Package Updates

2017-11-19: debconf-1.5.59-204 (Package configuration management system)
Debconf is a configuration management system for deb packages. Packages use
debconf to ask questions when they are installed.

commit log from gecko2:
This version is only available on snapshot.debian.org
2017-11-19: tnftp-20151004-1 (Browser program using ftp protocol)
`tnftp' is a portable version of the NetBSD ftp client, hence the name.
It was formerly known as `lukemftp'.

commit log from htodd:
Add back ftp as tnftp.
2017-11-18: libtool2-2.4.6-3 (Shared library build helper, v2.x)
GNU libtool knows how to build shared libraries on a wide range of
platforms. It is designed to work with autoconf to add painless shared
library support to GNU packages.

libtool-2.x is a major change from libtool-1.5. On darwin shared
libraries built with this version will have only one symlink
libfoo.dylib -> libfoo.2.dylib, not two links like on branch-1-5.
There are many many major changes in this version, and very likely
some bugs, please let me know if you come across any.

commit log from dmacks:
more-complete updating of timestamps on rev-dep files to avoid trying to recreate them after a low-level change (maintainer okay)
2017-11-18: vim-nox-8.0.1308-1 (Improved version of the editor "vi")
VIM adds many of the features that you would expect in an editor:
Unlimited undo, syntax coloring, split windows, visual selection,
graphical user interface (read: menus, mouse control, scrollbars,
text selection), and much much more.

2017-11-18: libnetsnmp30-shlibs-5.7.3-1 (SNMP tools and libraries)
The net-snmp package, previously known as ucd-snmp, provides tools 
and libraries relating to SNMP. It provides SNMP libraries (the
libnetsnmp30-dev and libnetsnmp30-shlibs packages), an SNMP
daemon and tools to request and set information (the net-snmp-bin
package), and other features.

let the build know about darwin17/high sierra
2017-11-17: bowtie2-2.3.3.1-1 (Ultrafast memory-efficient short read aligner)
An ultrafast and memory-efficient tool for aligning sequencing reads 
to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads 
of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s of characters, and particularly good 
at aligning to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes. 

Bowtie 2 indexes the genome with an FM Index to keep its memory footprint
small: for the human genome, its memory footprint is typically 
around 3.2 GB. Bowtie 2 supports gapped, local, and paired-end alignment modes.

2017-11-16: redland-shlibs-1.0.17-3 (RDF manipulation library)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Redland is a set of free software libraries that provide support for the
Resource Description Framework (RDF).

* Modular, object based libraries and APIs for manipulating the RDF graph,
  triples, URIs and Literals.
* Support for multiple syntaxes for reading and writing RDF as RDF/XML,
  N-Triples and Turtle Terse RDF Triple Language, RSS and Atom syntaxes via
  the Raptor RDF Parser Toolkit.
* Querying with SPARQL and RDQL using the Rasqal RDF Query Library.
* Data aggregation and recording provenance support with Redland contexts.
* Portable, fast and with no known memory leaks.

2017-11-16: cython-py34-0.27.3-1 (Tool to make writing Python modules easy)
Cython is a language specially designed for writing Python extension
 modules. It's designed to bridge the gap between the nice,
 high-level, easy-to-use world of Python and the messy, low-level
 world of C. Cython is based upon the well-known Pyrex package, but
 supports more cutting edge functionality and optimizations. To use
 the cython compiler, type cython at the prompt.
 
 Note: This package uses update-alternatives to allow cython for different 
 versions of python to be installed simultaneously.  '%p/bin/cython' will 
 always point to the highest installed version; use (e.g.) 'cython-py24'
 to choose others.

2017-11-15: aplus-fsf-4.22-1-2006 (APL based programming system)
A+ is a powerful and efficient programming language.  It embodies
 a rich set of functions and operators, a modern graphical user
 interface with many widgets and automatic synchronization of
 widgets and variables, asynchronous execution of functions associated
 with variables and events, dynamic loading of user compiled
 subroutines, and many other features. Execution is by a rather
 efficient interpreter.

2017-11-15: freetype-1.3.1-14 (TrueType font rendering library, version 1)
This is version 1 of the FreeType font renderer for TrueType fonts. It
is a library used by programs that want to do their own text drawing.

This package has hinting disabled, meaning that some characters will
look _really_ ugly. Some techniques used for hinting are patented by
Apple. This package is for the people who don't have an appropriate
patent license from Apple. If you have one or don't care, use the
freetype-hinting package instead.
