Another Minor Update

Another minor update showed up on -Current. This time, it's more likely a development tools and libraries that gets upgraded.

Git and mercurial are upgraded to the latest stable version along with some libraries such as libgsf, glib2, and v4l-utils. ViM and ViM-gvim are also upgraded and dialog is being rebuilt.

We still don't see Linux Kernel updates yet on -Current, while 2.6.37.6 has been out for days. Is it possible to have Linux Kernel 2.6.38.2 on -Current? We will have to wait for that one. If it does, then it's going to be a great release. Not much Linux distribution is shipping with Linux Kernel 2.6.38.x yet (it will be used in Ubuntu 11.04 and Fedora 15), but Slackware can make it the first one if it's released before April 28 Goodluck
