Hi there,

Sandro Furieri just uploaded new packages to the testing area.  Thanks Sandro.

Following changes were made:

freexl was updated to 1.0.0e
libxml2 was updated to 2.9.1
sqlite3 was updated to 3.7.17
spatialite was updated to 4.1.1

There is also a new package named spatialite3dll that only contains the DLL of
the previous spatialite version.  The DLL in the new spatialite package was
renamed spatialite4.dll to avoid breakages.  All other changed DLLs should be
ABI compatible.

The setup.hint of all packages that depended on the previous spatialite package
were changed to point to spatialite3dll (namely gdal, pyspatialite and

The next nightly build of qgis-dev will already use SpatiaLite 4 (and contain a
local pyspatialite supporting SpatiaLite 4).   In the process - as usual - the
setup_test.ini will be promoted to setup.ini and make the update public.

So we have a test window of about 5 hours from now...
