More Minor Changes

There are a lot of trivial changes happened this day after a massive big one in early March and this batch of update is not an exception. Basically it upgrades several packages while rebuilding other packages.

One security update is also released, which is Samba. Samba now uses 3.5.x instead of sticking with 3.4.x, which is a good measurement to make sure it has the most secure application at the moment.

Here are the changes in the latest -Current changelog:
