Arch Linux: Recent news updates: Lukas Fleischer announce at archlinux.org

For consistency with upstream naming, the lirc-utils package was renamed to
lirc. The wpc8769l kernel drivers were dropped and can be obtained by installing
[lirc-wpc8769l from the AUR][1].

Note that 0.9.2 is a major release and comes along with several upstream and
packaging changes. In particular, the `irexec.service` systemd unit was removed.
Please edit and copy the template `/usr/share/lirc/contrib/irexec.service` if
you want to keep using that service.
