New upstream curl 7.54.0
2017-04-22: emacs25-nox-25.2-1 (Flexible real-time text editor)
GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time
display editor. Through its extensibility, it is actually much more
than an editor. You can use it as a file manager, mail reader, web
browser, and for many other tasks. Some people even use it to control
their coffee machine.

2017-04-20: npth-1.3-1 (New GNU Portable Threads Library)
nPth is a library to provide the GNU Pth API and thus a non-preemptive
threads implementation.

In contrast to GNU Pth is is based on the system's standard threads
implementation. This allows the use of libraries which are not
compatible to GNU Pth. Experience with a Windows Pth emulation showed
that this is a solid way to provide a co-routine based framework.

new package npth 1.3
2017-04-20: libassuan2-2.4.3-1 (Safer IPC library)
Libassuan is a small library implementing the so-called Assuan
protocol. This protocol is used for IPC between most newer GnuPG
components. Both, server and client side functions are provided.

Assuan was developed for use by the GNU Privacy Guard, GnuPG, to
prevent potentially buggy clients from unwittingly corrupting
sensitive transactions or compromising data such as a secret key.
Assuan permits the servers, which do the actual work, e.g. encryption
and decryption of data using a secret key, to be developed
independently of the user interfaces, e.g. mail clients and other
encryption front ends. Like a shared library, the interface is well
defined and any number of front ends can use it; however, unlike a
shared library, the client cannot see or touch the server's data. As
with any modular system, Assuan helps keep the servers small and
understandable help to make code more understandable and less error
prone.

2017-04-20: libksba8-1.3.5-1 (Gnupg certificate management library)
Libksba is a library to make the tasks of working with X.509
certificates, CMS data and related objects more easy. It provides a
highlevel interface to the implemented protocols and presents the data
in a consistent way. There is no more need to worry about all the
nasty details of the protocols. The API gives the C programmer an easy
way of interacting with the data. It copes with the version details
X.509 protocols tend to have as well as with the many different
versions and dialects. Applications must usually cope with all of this
and it has to be coded over and over again. Libksba hides this by
providing just one API which does the Right Thing. Support for new
features will be added as needed.

libksba8 1.3.5
2017-04-20: hwloc-1.11.6-1 (Portable Hardware Locality)
The Portable Hardware Locality (hwloc) software package provides a
portable abstraction (across OS, versions, architectures, ...) of 
the hierarchical topology of modern architectures, including NUMA
memory nodes, sockets, shared caches, cores and simultaneous
multithreading.

necessary.
