Kernel Updates

It seems that PV realize that there won't be any kernel release again this year besides the -Stable version, so today he released an update to the standard kernel being used in -Current to, the latest -Stable version along with updates to glibc. I have download some of them but i will need to download the vanilla kernel source for and compile it before i upgrade to the latest update to sync with the Slackware development.

I think it will be the last update for this year (if there aren't any major security problem) before most of the developers are taking their end of year break big grin
