9 Since version 3.0.0 media-gfx/darktable officially only supports 64-bit
10 architectures, and we have observed errors while attempting to build
11 these versions on x86 - making media-gfx/darktable-2.6.2 the last
12 version to support this architecture. However the 2.6.x branch of
13 Darktable has not seen any activity since October 2019 and we have just
14 confirmed with upstream that all but the latest release branch (3.4.x at
15 the time of writing this) are not supported.
17 In light of the above we have decided to remove
18 media-gfx/darktable-2.6.2 from the tree, thus effectively dropping x86
19 support from that package, by 2021-06-15.
