Slow Pace of Current Progress

It's mid June and the development for the next Slackware release is still slow without significant changes over packages. Pat only updates small number of packages which is considered safe without breaking other applications besides security updates.

The latest changes including rebuilding ncurses to apply upstream patch which should fixed a screen problem (reported in LQ), rebuilding yptools to fix non-changeable password in yppasswd, and upgrading xscreensaver to 5.29.
