This Week's Updates in Slackware Current

Here's a list of the latest updates over the course of the week, notably the gstreamer plugins have been upgraded and the kernel is now at 4.14.56 to ensure you're always running the latest in the LTS line that Slackware is using.
Also, on 17th July it was 25 years since the Slackware 1.0 release although apparently there's some dispute or uncertainty whether it was really the 16th August. Anyway, enjoy!

Happy 25th anniversary to the Slackware 1.00 release! When the original
announcement went out on Usenet, I believe it had a UTC timestamp which has
led to some confusion over whether the anniversary falls on the 16th (which
was the date when I made the post) or on the 17th (which is when most people
first saw it)... but really, what's the difference? We can celebrate on both
days as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for sticking with the project all these
years. Glad I was able to help. :)
Here's a link to the 1.00 announcement:
       http://www.slackware.com/announce/1.0.php
And here's a nice article that was posted on opensource.com:

a/kernel-firmware-20180717_8d69bab-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
l/pulseaudio-12.2-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.

       This update fixes bugs and security issues. Upstream strongly recommends
       that all IMAP and POP users upgrade as soon as possible.
