Slackware Classic

A new logo has come up on the -Current changelog today, called Slackware Classic. It's like the original Slackware logo, but they changed the word "Linux" into "Classic". I hope it will make many people happy since some of them doesn't like the flippy logo after all (by looking at the vote results on the right side of this blog). Well, it's not just logo updates, but also a small updates on l/ and xap/ directories as well. Here they are:
Sat Sep 20 15:15:49 CDT 2008
l/gnome-icon-theme-2.23.92-noarch-2.tgz: The previous package was missing 3354 symlinks to alternate icon names. Thanks to Tom Nardi for letting me know about the new --enable-icon-mapping option.

l/libpng-1.2.32-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libpng-1.2.32.

xap/imagemagick-6.4.3_6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ImageMagick-6.4.3-6.
This, like the previous package, fails when "convert foo.eps foo.png" is tried. It's not a Slackware problem (I see it elsewhere when searching), but the imagemagick package from 12.1 works... unless it is recompiled.
Any hints welcome.
