I am happy to announce the availability of the new multilib repository. At this
time, it contains wine, skype and flashplugin. Furthermore, a multilib compiler
is available.

With the launch of the multilib repository all old 'lib32' packages are being
removed from community - the core/extra/community repositories will be "pure 64
bit" again.

If you want to use the new multilib packages (and most desktop or laptop users
probably do), add the following lines to your pacman.conf:


    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
