[poppler] Poppler 0.41.0 released
Albert Astals Cid aacid at kde.org
Tue Feb 16 23:20:52 UTC 2016

Changes against 0.40.0 include:

core:
 • CairoOutputDev: add missing font types (fontCIDType0COT and
   fontTrueTypeOT). Bug #93559
 • SplashOutputDev: Adjust limit check and check in addition bitmap
   pointer. Bug #94053

utils:
 • pdfseparate: Refine resource detection
 • pdfinfo: fix man page

We seem to have been able to produce two releases without breaking the
API nor ABI of the core :D

Testing, patches and bug reports welcome.

Cheers,
  Albert

Sorry to intrude. I declare all respect and much liking you, your posts/humour and the deep and accurate level of your work.

Just noticed that you removed the poppler test suite. It takes less than 0.4 SBU.

It has been acceptable to edit not performing the test suites.

However, I believe that a clear justification should be given, before removing it from a package.

Unless something happened that I do not know, this is completely unacceptable.

[Limited the citation to 72 characters - when I was creating the tickets, I used to do it as much as possible, because I know your difficulty with long lines]

Fernando says that the testsuite does still exist in 41 (my notes say there was nothing to be done for check), so I don't think I'm competent to touch this package in future. Fortunately, I only commented out the details.

I am not only saying, but proving.

BTW, the test suite *works with -jN* (1 ≤ N ≤ cpu X threads).

I find

Finally tests finishes, record statistics and grep to have the results (double, due to tests with Qt4 and 5) repeated in on place at the end:

Is your intention to remove all test suites? This could be discussed. But removing the test suite from poppler without any discussion?

I think we give too much emphasis to many test suites, rather than testing whether a package for which something is a dependency still works. But I commented the text becasue it seemed to me that there was no longer a testsuite.

OK.

As I said somewhere, I could accept a decision to remove all test suites, although, many has helped me, many are a PITA.

But as you see there are tests.

The same way as many other packages, test suites or related harness or data must be additionally downloaded:

OpenJDK (tarball from anduin). FFmpeg (rsync) Lua (tarball from mainstream)

I my have missed some.

And I have already run for version 0.42.0. Results have been similar for many editions.
