Yesterday BLFS achieved a significant milestone.  Since LFS-7.2 was 
released on September 1st, all 625 (or so) packages in BLFS have been 
updated.  Most are marked as lfs72_checked, and only 9 are marked 
lfs72_built (but not tested).

In addition, all the tickets for package updates and other issues have 
been addressed.  Only two remain and they both await upstream.

To my knowledge, BLFS has never been this complete since the start of 
the project.  Of course, the book is not perfect, but we will be able to 
address new issues and package updates as they come up.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have 
contributed to getting to this stage.  Special thanks go to Armin, 
Ragnar, Ken, DJ, and Chris for their contributions.

The BLFS version as of today has been placed in the BLFS Museum:
