Security Update: Fetchmail and Slackware 13.0 RC2

Well, another security update has been release by Pat and this time, it comes with bunch of updates and also a tag of Slackware 13.0 RC 2. I think the release will be soon enough (i'm predicting by this month, Slackware 13.0 would have been released).

Here's the latest -Current update:
Thu Aug 6 00:48:30 CDT 2009
Hi folks! We're going to call this set of updates RC2. There are still README files to be handled (that's the nature of documentation, I guess), as well as some other things remaining on the TODO list, but X seems pretty stable now, and it seems like a release soon would be in order so that we can march right back into development territory with -current again soon. :-)
Enjoy, and let us know about any problems you run into!
