Slackware-14.2 ChangeLog (2016-05-02)

Mon May 2 19:42:54 UTC 2016

  • ap/tmux-2.1-i586-2.txz
    Reverted to tmux-2.1, because tmux-2.2 has dropped support for non-UTF8
    character sets “since supporting multiple character sets is a pain”.
    Thanks to Dan Church for the bug report.
  • l/icu4c-56.1-i586-2.txz
    Patched pkgdata crash when using “-m”. Thanks to Fabio Bas.
  • l/librsvg-2.40.15-i586-2.txz
    Reverted upstream patch that broke the rsvg-convert scaling functionality.
    Thanks to haary.
  • d/mercurial-3.8.1-i586-1.txz
    This update fixes possible arbitrary code execution when converting Git
    repos. Mercurial prior to 3.8 allowed arbitrary code execution when using
    the convert extension on Git repos with hostile names. This could affect
    automated code conversion services that allow arbitrary repository names.
    This is a further side-effect of Git CVE-2015-7545.
    Reported and fixed by Blake Burkhart.
