Last Week's Updates and Upgrades in Slackware Current

Last week's major news in current were two upgrades to the Linux LTS kernel which is now at 4.14.62 and the fact that Mozilla Thunderbird's first release of a major new version with a bump to 60.0 has made it into Slackware already. This should not be upgraded from 52 as extensions and themes are apparently not compatible with earlier versions so keep both around for now if that's important. Also boost had an upgrade which means LibreOffice is currently not working until compiled against boost 1.68.
