When are we planning to remove HAL from the distribution? Apparently
other distributions are already working on this for their next releases,

advance so the implications for applications using HAL are clear.


The obvious questions are:

Why is HAL being removed?

What is replacing it?

"HAL is in maintenance mode - no new features are added. All future
development focuses on Software/DeviceKit-disks, Software/DeviceKit-power,
NetworkManager, PulseAudio, udev, ... "

Thanks for your response. Picture is becoming clearer.....
