The Latest Slackware Updates in the Current Tree

Lots of interesting updates and upgrades again. An updated kernel-firmware package, Mozilla Thunderbird 60.3.0 and also upgrades of getmail and the notifyd daemon in Xfce4 to name but a few. Slackware is still incredibly fast on this older machine and there is really no point in using a source based distribution which I had been considering for a while. Anything like that would entail a lot more work and couldn't be any more responsive.
