Unfortunately the zmq devs have decided that this security update requires breaking sonames, going from to Means that I can't simply update the package, instead it must go through [staging] and everything that links zeromq must be rebuilt.

Thankfully there are only four packages that link zeromq and I maintain three of them. Fontforge is the fourth, and it is in [extra] so I can't do anything about it. Already contacted Vesath (Bisson) about that.

Okay, all done. Much thanks to the devs Bisson, Falconindy and Foutrelis.
