On what is becoming a new habit of Friday nights, a new build for dextrose
4 is out, the 6th, and those are the release notes:

* Packages needed for accessibily (magnifier-Ceibal and ax) are included
only in x86 builds (xo1 and 1.5), because the src.rpm version found at
http://download.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/testing/dxo2/rpms/source/  ,
 doesn't include source code, just a i386 binary.

Ruben tracked magnifier source code to http://magnifier.sourceforge.net/ ,and
I'm packaging it properly so it ca be shipped with dextrose4 builds for arm

* Also, now we are using our own set of activities, pulled from
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/DX/4 for xo 1.5,1.75 and 4 , and from
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/DX/4Lite for xo1.

* New schema for saving builds on http://build.activitycentral.com/DX4 .We
have now directorys named after the build number (buildX),  and a directory
named "latest" that links to the latest build

* This build uses the official f18 mirrors, and not the olpc frozen ones,
due to problems with build using them.

We have the usual changelogs too:
