This Week's Security Updates and Upgrades in Slackware Current

This week has been quite active so far with too many relevant upgrades to count, among them a new hplip for HP printer devices, sqlite, rpm and another upgrade to Samba and The Gimp, in no particular order of importance. Others may argue upgrades to sane, php, pycairo, udisks2 and lvm2 are more interesting or the fact that an upgrade to the Blackbox window manager has arrived. No, it's not dead yet. There are also updates to Vim 8.1 and the 4.19 kernel.
