Notable current bugs

libxml2, GCompris and Write

The included libxml2-2.7.1-1 has a nasty XML parsing bug. A newer libxml2 with the fix is available but breaks Write.xo (when initializing libabiword).

The impact of this bug is limited to newer versions of GCompris -- the GCompris release targetted for 8.2.x works around this bug and is recommended.


Unless noted in the bug fixes above, the open bugs are the same as in release 8.2.0, and 8.2.1 .
