Time for a Slackware 11 Beta

I feel a Slackware 11 Beta release coming on in the next few days. Why? We haven’t seen any updates to the slackware-current changelog in 15 days. I’m hoping Pat has been busy building some final packs and building some beta ISO’s for us.

The last round of updates in the changelog were fairly minor:

Thu Jun 29 02:03:45 CDT 2006
n/ppp-2.4.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ppp-2.4.4.
n/rp-pppoe-3.8-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled with –enable-plugin.
Thanks to Frédéric L. W. Meunier for the suggestion.
extra/k3b/k3b-0.12.16-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to k3b-0.12.16.
Thanks to Matthew Johnson for pointing out the new release.
extra/k3b/k3b-i18n-0.12.16-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to k3b-i18n-0.12.16.

Hopefully we’ll see Slackware 11.0 Beta 1 before the month is over.

    We *are* getting closer to 11.0, friends.
    I’m hoping for a larger changeset soon, but this should be fun to play with
    for now as I work on the TODO list; merging, compiling, and initial testing.
    n/samba-3.0.23-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to samba-3.0.23.
    This fixes a minor memory exhaustion DoS in smbd.
    The CVE entry for this issue may be found here:
    (* Security fix *)
