Security Update: Pidgin

New Slackware security advisory is now released for pidgin which fixed several vulnerabilities with each of them has CVE entries. It's been some time since last Pidgin was released and it seems that the development is so quiet.

Besides pidgin, some other packages gets upgraded as well, such as GMP, GIT, and GIMP. GMP update bumps the shared library version, causing other applications might need for rebuilding soon. GIMP is now on 2.8.4, the latest stable version which was released last week, and GIT is now on 1.8.x series.

QScintilla is rebuilt after someone (ecoslacker) commented on Eric's blog post saying that sip upgrade breaks his Eric4 application and recompiling does not work since there has been API incompatibilities. Rebuilding QScintilla fixed this problem.
