Kernel 4.19.0 Now in Slackware Current

Last week brought many important upgrades, most notably a major jump to the latest stable kernel line with 4.19.0. With this Slackware is as up to date in current tree as it hasn't been in a long time and can truly compete with rolling distributions while also being immensely stable. One of the reasons why I moved from Arch to Slackware current for my rolling installations years ago. Also we have upgrades to Firefox, Pan, Python 3, Samba,  NetworkManager, and many others.
