Afaics, 1.2.1 is a pure bugfix release, so it complies with our updates policy.

I have submitted updated packages of Synfig Studio and its direct
requirements for Mageia 6.

described on the linked release information page. No new features

MGA6-32 on Dell Latitude D600 MATE
No installation issues.
Synfigstudio starts up, and I could draw a rectangle, cirkle and a little text, although this is a painfully slow exercise on this little machine. But seems OK.

Mageia 6 :: x86_64

Installed the packages and launched Synfig Studio from the Graphics menu.

Updated the seven packages.

Launched Synfig Studio and tried out various tools.  Created circles and sketched a triangle.  Created a canvas of graded circles and a spiral gradient, just by poking around.  Tried saving to a file; appeared as 'Synfig Animation 1.sifz'.

It looks as if it is working, as Josua indicated in comment 3.

Validating this.  It can be pushed whenever the advisory is ready.

Comment 6 Dave Hodgins 2017-12-05 21:05:39 CET
The etl srpm is very unusual in that it only has the one devel package, which
is not required by any other package so won't be installed on most users systems.
From it's contents, I'm guessing the package is only used as a build requires,
not a run time requires, so other then ensuring it updates cleanly, no other
testing of that package can be done. First time I remember seeing an update
like this.

Advisory committed to svn.
