Packages to be Tested

Two new packages have arrived on /testing directory. It's bash and mesa. Like i said. Newer version of Mesa has just been released yesterday, but it will require more intensive testing, so for now, the current version of mesa being used is still 7.4.1 while 7.4.3 is placed on /testing for a while to make sure that it has been tested by public and then it will be moved to the proper place if it qualifies.

As for BASH, it's still the same. Slackware still actively following the progress of BASH, but the default version hasn't change from the last release. Me myself has been using 3.2.048 and found no problem on my daily usage, but i'm not sure of upgrading to 4.0.024 for now.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:
