Renaming and Splitting

Renaming of python3 in python, the split of qt5 and the latest updates had big impacts on all the packages. As a result, the NuTyX team decides to recompile ALL the packages for this new version.

We took the opportunity to adjust a few others things.

  • The base-extra collection is now integrated in the base collection.
  • The /usr/lib64 -> /usr/lib and /lib64 -> /lib links are removed.
The /usr/lib64 directory should not exist anymore.

Cards 2.1.106

The cards default configuration files are corrected so they are adapted to the new collections list. The base-extra collection is delete from the configuration files and in documentation.

The french translation is almost complete. Others translations are very welcome.
