Slackware ChangeLog: September 14th

Well, I was really looking forward to a release today of Slackware 11.0, but it looks like we got another update in the -current changelog. Here is the full changelog entry:

Thu Sep 14 03:57:37 CDT 2006
a/glibc-solibs-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled.
a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.6-noarch-6.tgz: Upgraded to tzcode2006k and tzdata2006k.
Added “ldconfig -r .” to install script. Thanks to Stuart Winter.
a/openssl-solibs-0.9.8b-i486-2.tgz: Patched an issue where it is possible to
forge certain kinds of RSA signatures. The patch is used instead of an
upgrade to openssl-0.9.8c as it was issued later with a corrected fix.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4339
(* Security fix *)
a/udev-097-i486-10.tgz: If there’s no udevd daemon, don’t allow rc.udev to
try to start. Thanks to Eugene Crosser.
d/pkgconfig-0.21-i486-3.tgz: Added {curly brackets} around PKG_CONFIG_PATH
in /etc/profile.d/pkgconfig.*. Thanks to Rémy Pagniez.
l/glibc-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled against 2.4.33.3 and 2.6.17.13 headers.
(these kernel versions are now “golden” for release)
l/glibc-i18n-2.3.6-noarch-6.tgz: Recompiled.
l/glibc-profile-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled.
n/openssl-0.9.8b-i486-2.tgz: Patched an issue where it is possible to
forge certain kinds of RSA signatures. The patch is used instead of an
upgrade to openssl-0.9.8c as it was issued later with a corrected fix.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4339
(* Security fix *)
kernels/huge26.s/*: Added NFSv3 support.

Looks to be mainly glibc related so maybe we will see a release by the weekend…but who knows!
