And it is now in the [testing] repository.

A reminder of the upgrade instructions:

1) Fix any non-official packages with files in /bin, /sbin or /usr/sbin
to put those files in /usr/bin.  The list of packages to be fixed can be
generated using:
$ comm -12 <(pacman -Qqm) <(pacman -Qqo /bin /sbin /usr/sbin | sort -u)

2) Make sure any packages in IgnorePkg or IgnoreGroup do not have files
in /bin, /sbin, or /usr/sbin.  Fix them if necessary.

3) Update your system:
$ pacman -Syu --ignore filesystem
$ pacman -Su

Do not use --force.  pacman-4.1 will not let you anyway...
