We released version 3.3-1 of grep (Pattern matching utilities), version 4.7-1 of sed (A GNU stream text editor), version 530-1 of less (A text file browser similar to more, but better), version 1.15-2 of ed (The GNU line editor), version 1.07.1-1 of bc (GNU's bc (a numeric processing language) and dc (a calculator)), version 2.10.0-1 of freetype (A free and portable font rendering engine), version 1-7 of os2-rpm (OS/2 specific RPM macros and scripts), version 2.13.1-2 of fontconfig (Font configuration and customization library)
*In Qt 5 we added Mouse, Keyboard, PM Font and PM Color support. A test rpm should be available soon.*
It is uploaded as rpm to the netlabs rel or exp repository. To install just use either yum or ANPM. If anyone prefers a zip file, those are available at the netlabs rel repo <> or at the netlabs exp repo <>.
