This Week's Updates in Review

All updates since last Friday, the 14th September. The newest kernel in Current is now 4.14.71. Not that every small, incremental update would matter that much unless you're got some piece of hardware you're desperately waiting to be supported. At the same time, kernel.org is up to 4.18.9 for latest stable and 4.19-rc4 in the development branch. If you need it, but my pc's here are running perfectly fine with older kernels. Salut and see ya.

ap/dmidecode-3.2-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
ap/nano-3.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
ap/slackpkg-2.83.0-noarch-4.txz: Rebuilt.

a/kernel-firmware-20180913_44d4fca-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
a/kernel-generic-4.14.70-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
a/kernel-huge-4.14.70-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
a/kernel-modules-4.14.70-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
ap/hplip-3.18.7-x86_64-4.txz: Rebuilt.
       Applied fixed patch - this has a better chance of working now. I've checked
       and hpcups no longer links to libImageProcessor. Which, by the way, the
       previous build dumped onto my main system (not even in "make install"),
       but not into the package itself. I no longer own an HP printer and will
       never buy another one, so if there are any remaining problems please report.
       Thanks to Matteo Bernardini.
