“Are we there yet?”
<5 minutes pass>
“Are we nearly there?”
“YES!”
  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-arm-16.txz
  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.8-arm-6.txz
    Fixed detecting USB partition in init, added proper USB storage modules
    to mkinitrd, and added missing USB keyboard modules to
    mkinitrd_command_generator.sh to fix entering LUKS password with some
    newer USB keyboards. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  • a/pkgtools-14.2-noarch-6.txz
    In removepkg, fix package name matching so that (for example) “removepkg s”
    will not remove a package whose name begins and ends with “s”.
    Thanks to Andreas Guldstrand.
    Added internationalized man pages.
    Thanks to Didier Spaier and the Slint translation team.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-31.txz
    rc.S: In cryptsetup script, support supplying a password of “none”
    (interactive entry) for non-swap partitions to allow specifying additional
    options. Support a new option “discard” to pass the –allow-discards option
    to cryptsetup when unlocking a volume, which can potentially improve
    performance and longevity on some SSDs. Thanks to Nathan Wallace.
  • ap/lxc-2.0.1-arm-4.txz
    Merged rc.S changes.
  • ap/slackpkg-2.82.1-noarch-2.txz
    Added internationalized man pages.
    Thanks to Didier Spaier and the Slint translation team.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.2.2-arm-2.txz
    Install udev rules in the correct directory. Thanks to gmgf.
  • n/samba-4.4.4-arm-2.txz
    When installing, move any files existing in /etc/samba/private to
    /var/lib/samba/private, not just *.tdb files.
    Thanks to Maciej Goluchowski.
  • n/vsftpd-3.0.3-arm-3.txz
    Patched to handle NULL returns from recent glibc crypt(). Thanks to nixi.
  • xap/pidgin-2.10.12-arm-2.txz
    Use the much larger collection of SSL certs in /etc/ssl/certs rather
    than the ones that ship with Pidgin, otherwise certificates issued by
    Let's Encrypt (and others) cannot be verified. Thanks to Cesare.
  • isolinux/*
  • a/gettext-0.19.8.1-arm-1.txz

  • n/libgcrypt-1.7.1-arm-1.txz
  • n/libgpg-error-1.23-arm-1.txz
  • n/wget-1.18-arm-1.txz
    This version fixes a security vulnerability present in all old versions
    of wget. On a server redirect from HTTP to a FTP resource, wget would
    trust the HTTP server and use the name in the redirected URL as the
    destination filename. This behaviour was changed and now it works
    similarly as a redirect from HTTP to another HTTP resource so the original
    name is used as the destination file. To keep the previous behaviour the
    user must provide –trust-server-names.
    The vulnerability was discovered by Dawid Golunski and was reported by
    Beyond Security's SecuriTeam.
