While we're at it.

Midnight Commander: 'Tree' view is broken in current's version. An update to 4.8.8 fixed it here.

TobiSGD 05-24-2013 11:47 AM

Then I will add also one: Vim is currently about 350 patch levels behind upstream.

If you read the article better, you will notice that the article talks only of the Plasma Workspace (i.e. the content of the kde-workspace package) and not of the KDE Software Compilation as a whole. The Plasma Workspace will be feature-frozen but the KDE SC will see 4.12 and perhaps even 4.13 releases - building on this Plasma Workspace which will only be polished and stabilized with no new features added.
The same has happened with kdelibs - in the past years this has been feature-frozen as well, much to the chagrin some distros who wanted their customizations to flow back into kdelibs but asked in vain.

If you look at the KDE release schedule for the 4.11 series, you will see that KDE 4.11 is going to be released on 14 August, 2013. I would not bet my money on the first release in the KDE 4.11.x series becoming part of the next Slackware release. I would much rather see the last release in the 4.10 series (available on 2 July) be part of the next release.

thanks for the clarification!

CUPS version 1.6.2 is out.

willysr 05-25-2013 12:14 AM

I have been using it for a while since 1.6.0 released and have the slackbuilds script ready at my SlackHacks repository if you want to use it. It requires cups-filters package as well since some functionality has been dropped from the main cups tree

gmgf 05-25-2013 12:44 AM

another possible upgrade:

gnutls, 3.2.0 version is available
qca, 2.03 version is available since longtime.
poppler, 0.22.4 version is available
gphoto2 libgphoto2 2.5.2 version is available

willysr 05-25-2013 04:12 AM

i think it would be easier for Pat to include libraries that are well tested rather than asking for packages to be included without prior testing as new libraries tends to add more functionality by adding more requirements

gmgf 05-25-2013 05:00 AM

You think when Pat include the new glibc gcc, or hplip, etc, etc.......... these softs are tested since more months ;)

willysr 05-25-2013 11:18 AM

Yes, but libraries tends to break very often if we just blindly upgrade them, so it would be helpful for Patrick if we do testing prior asking for him to include it on the distribution

I wish mc would get partially patched in 14.0 too. :)

I'm using 14.0. A while ago I noticed mcedit does not remember the line I was at when I closed a file. I found confirmation at the mc bug tracker:

https://www.midnight-commander.org/t...=0&cnum_hist=4

The patch is here:

https://www.midnight-commander.org/c...0a4c27c22cef09

The patch is working for me.

readline and libjpeg haven't been updated for years.
