2021-07-23: physfs-shlibs-1.0.0-1005 (Access to various archive formats)
PhysicsFS is a library to provide abstract access to various
    archives. It is intended for use in video games, and the design
    was somewhat inspired by Quake 3's file subsystem. The programmer
    defines a "write directory" on the physical filesystem. No file
    writing done through the PhysicsFS API can leave that write
    directory, for security.  For example, an embedded scripting
    language cannot write outside of this path if it uses PhysFS
    for all of its I/O, which means that untrusted scripts can run
    more safely. Symbolic links can be disabled as well, for added
    safety. For file reading, the programmer lists directories and
    archives that form a "search path". Once the search path is
    defined, it becomes a single, transparent hierarchical filesystem.
    This makes for easy access to ZIP files in the same way as you
    access a file directly on the disk, and it makes it easy to
    ship a new archive that will override a previous archive on a
    per-file basis. Finally, PhysicsFS gives you platform-abstracted
    means to determine if CD-ROMs are available, the user's home
    directory, where in the real filesystem your program is running,
    etc.

2021-07-22: xrootd4-4.12.6-1 (Distributed access to data repositories)
The XROOTD project aims at giving high performance, scalable fault
  tolerant access to data repositories of many kinds. The typical usage
  is to give access to file-based ones. It is based on a scalable
  architecture, a communication protocol, and a set of plugins and tools
  based on those. The freedom to configure it and to make it scale
  (for size and performance) allows the deployment of data access clusters
  of virtually any size, which caninclude sophisticated features, like
  authentication/authorization, integrations with other systems, WAN data
  distribution, etc.

commit log from Daniel Macks (dmacks@netspace.org):

    xrootd4: new version
    
    This is likely the last xrootd v4 release upstream.
2021-07-22: libavcodec58-4.0-shlibs-4.4-1 (Audio/video encoders and decoders libraries)
FFMpeg is a complete and free Internet live audio and video broadcasting
  solution for Linux/Unix. It also includes a digital VCR. It can encode in
  real time in many formats including MPEG1 audio and video, MPEG4, h263,
  ac3, asf, avi, real, mjpeg, and flash.

    ffmpeg: Upstream fix for build failures on 10.11 and earlier.
2021-07-21: libopusfile0-shlibs-0.11-2 (Opus stream playback library)
The opusfile library provides seeking, decode, and playback of Opus
streams in the Ogg container (.opus files) including over http(s) on
posix and windows systems.

    libopusfile: fixing some deps and -I ordering
2021-07-21: imlib2-loaders-1.7.1-1 (Image handling library (extra loaders))
Imlib2 is the successor to Imlib.  It is not just a newer version, it is a
completely new library.  Imlib2 can be installed alongside Imlib 1.x
without any problems since they are effectively different libraries, but
they have very similar functionality.

This package contains extra image loaders for the Imlib2 library.

    imlib2: new version, propagate x11 flag (in public API)

2021-07-19: deadbeef-1.8.7-2 (Music player)
DeaDBeeF (as in 0xDEADBEEF) is a modular audio player for GNU/Linux,
*BSD, OpenSolaris, macOS, and other UNIX-like systems.

DeaDBeeF lets you play variety of audio formats, convert between them,
customize the UI almost any way you want, and use many additional
plugins which can extend it even more.
