Security Update: Shadow

Shadow is now rebuilt and issued as a security update where the vulnerability could potentially lead to a denial of service. This update only applies to Slackware 13.1 and -Current. It has been given an advisory code of SSA:2011-101-01.

Meanwhile, work towards better Slackware release are still being one on several packages, mostly pkgtool. It has received a lot of patches from many people in LQ and hopefully this will be the last update to pkgtool.

There's also a lot of rebuilt packages in this batch of updates, including seamonkey, apmd, sysvinit-scripts, and v4l-utils. Mesa in /testing is upgraded to 7.10.2, the latest stable release and gdk-pixbufs is also upgraded as well.
