Current Moving On

After a while, Pat has finally updated the public repository with a massive (as expected) updates with a great quote from the fortune package and everything looks shinny and interesting to see.

So, in general, this is what you will get with the latest -Current:
  • Linux Kernel 3.2.2 (fixed the mempodipper bug)
  • Coreutil 8.15 (brings improvement for ext4)
  • Cups 1.4.8 (brings fixes for LibreOffice printing problems, and have a chance to be backported to 13.37 as a patch)
  • Glibc 2.14.1(latest stable version being rebuilt with new GCC)
  • GCC 4.6.2 (also latest stable, with support of Go language from Google)
  • Emacs 23.4 (surprisingly newer than in the original website)
  • Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird 10 (just released few days ago)
  • Seamonkey 2.7 (along with GCC updates to have it working for ARM architecture, thanks to AlienBOB's work)
  • OpenSSL 0.9.8t (still no 1.0 release yet, but it's 0.9.x still well maintained upstream)
  • ca-certificates-20111211: removed untrusted certificates 
  • Some library and standard updates
More packages will come soon enough, so start your engine and bandwidth for the whole new excitement of Slackware-Current.

I will start by syncing with the latest update on Slackware-Current in UKDW Repository
