Hi all,

The new AppImage scripts have been rewritten few days ago to switch from
Centos6 to Mageia6 as Linux host to build the bundles. The scripts are
really simplified as Mageia6 is very well packaged and better so far
Centos. All dependencies for multimedia RPMs are already present and up to
date. Mageia6 still maintained and not too old to still binary compatible
with all current Linux distribution when you use the bundle. Remember the
low level glibc used by AppImage to run and which cannot be bundled as well
to still compatible with the kernel.

I tested the 64 bits AppImage under Mageia7, Centos7, and last Ubuntu. I
cannot see a dysfunction at run time.

I recompiled also the Windows installer, and the MacOS package is under way.

I would to run all the static analyzer on current code to be sure that
nothing special have been introduced as hidden dysfunction. If all is fine,
well we will see not so far from a 6.2.0 release date.

Of course i would to know if a special report in bugzilla need to be
processed in priority for this release.

VoilĂ , I waiting your feedback.
