By the way I changed a bit a changelog handling. Read on...

Update Extended Slackware dla Slackware 11.0

Addition date: Fri, 08 Dec 2006 18:09:07 +0100

Packages compilation took me a bit too long. Without needless talking, some packages are dropped (cURL, wget, itcl, iwidgets, GHC, Ruby, SDL, TCM and xfig; they provide the same functionality as distribution packages or have some compilation problems which I won't fix for now).
From other news, I'm planning to resume work on pkgtools-ng. I home it will take me less time than packages recompilation.

Most important is new apache2 package. It's a security bugfix (CVE-2006-374710).
Another bigger updates: syslog-ng (to 1.9 branch; requires glib2), e16+imlib2 (e16 is former enlightenment; there was user's config files change), logcheck (fixed few rules).
Other updates: cyrus-imapd, dovecot, imlib2, openswan, ipsec-tools, mplayer, postfix, psi, qemu, shadow.
New packages: p5-io-socket-ssl (perlish SSL/TLS layer with IO::Socket interface), synce (connector to palmtops controlled by Windows CE and Windows Mobile 2003).

Packages for IPsec

Addition date: Mon, 01 May 2006 04:32:04 +0200

I find ipsec-tools and openswan packages checked enough to put them in official Extended Slackware repository. I don't know when I make good default configs for them, but I'll do it. Beside openswan I put htmldoc, which is required for building the former package.
Because of the newest (not yet published) attack on IPsec (actually, on IKE), I advise to download sources of ipsec-tools or Openswan and building package on your own. Don't trust binaries.
