This Week's Changes in Slackware Current and 14.2 Changelogs

The change log in Slackware-current continues to be busy, with rebuilds, fixes and upgrades coming out almost on a daily basis. All this activity bodes well both for an up to date but still stable system if you're running current and for a new release being not too far off any more this year.  Vim and Networkmanager have been upgraded and the kernel is now at 4.14.52, with the necessary sources, kernel-headers and modules packages of course available as well. Mozilla Firefox has now switched to 60.1.0 ESR, indicating this will be in the next stable release.

For all you coders, Perl and Gfortran have been updated as well and in extra Sox has been rebuilt for running a pure Alsa system for those who still do not want Pulseaudio.

a/dcron-4.5-x86_64-9.txz: Rebuilt.
       Dropped two patches that were breaking @daily jobs.
       Thanks to Dennis Snow for the bug report.
ap/texinfo-6.5-x86_64-6.txz: Rebuilt.
       Rebuilt with --disable-perl-xs (use native Perl modules instead of C
       versions), which fixes the FTBFS issues we were having with glibc.
       Thanks to nobodino, ponce, and mmawhin for the help.
+--------------------------+
Wed Jun 27 19:40:52 UTC 2018
ap/texinfo-6.5-x86_64-5.txz: Rebuilt.
       Fixed unescaped left brace warning from perl-5.28.0.

+--------------------------+
Wed Jun 27 04:13:25 UTC 2018
a/kernel-generic-4.14.52-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
a/kernel-huge-4.14.52-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
a/kernel-modules-4.14.52-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
ap/sox-14.4.2-x86_64-6.txz: Rebuilt.
       Rebuilt to drop libssp dependency. We're no longer building that with gcc
       since glibc already includes a built-in SSP implementation.
d/gcc-8.1.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
       Shared library .so-version bump.
       This is taken from the gcc-8-branch of the svn repo on 20180626, revision
       r262159. All packages have been tested for build failures and all new FTBFS
       issues are fixed - I think we're down to the six possibly obsolete X drivers
       (geode, r128, s3virge, savage, sis, and tseng) and virtuoso-ose.
d/gcc-brig-8.1.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
d/gcc-g++-8.1.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.

n/netatalk-3.1.11-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
       Thanks to Matthew Schumacher for updating the build script and providing
       some useful config file examples.
extra/pure-alsa-system/sox-14.4.2-x86_64-6_alsa.txz: Rebuilt.
