If that turns out to be true I guess I should remove powerpc from the
list of supported architectures. This would also free the way for xaralx
to the next stable Debian release (lenny, “expected” somewhen this
year). Is this version fit even for a stable release that’s not changed
for a year or two? Or is it not reliable enough for those users that
prefer old versions over regular updates? :-)
