Back from holiday
I enjoyed two weeks of camping with my family, in Brittany (France).
If you want to know what the view looked like…
Of course there was a lot more to see. We hunt old ruins with our camera! Brittany is full of chapels, monasteries, and the boulders everyone knows from places like Carnac.
When I got back home, the first packages I needed to push out were VLC because 1.1.11 plugs two vulnerabilities, and the new beta of flashplayer 11 because finally Adobe seems to have merged the development of the 64-bit version with the “mainline” 32-bit plugin. They are both essentially the same version now, 11 beta 1 (build date 071311). The plugin itself reports that it has version 188.8.131.52.
Get the packages for vlc and flashplayer-plugin at the usual location: http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (the version of vlc without the patent restrictions that can encode mp3 and aac (instead of just being able to decode these formats) to be found as usual at http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/restricted_slackbuilds/vlc/)
More packages to come, but that needs more preparation before I can start. I need to build a patched KDE 4.6.5 package for kdeutils, and all of the KDEI source tarballs seem to have been re-generated by the KDE release team while I was on holiday.
Have fun! Eric
