Just wondering if the shellshock vulnerability in bash has been addressed in slackware or if it is a concern for vector users. this issue is front page news and patches are being applied although apparently not a complete fix have lessened the severity. If a patch is available will it be posted to security or how should I address it if it is a concern for vector? any information would be appreciated as I have currently no info on what the risk is to users or how patches are being applied.

there is a newly found exploit in bash

http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2014-6271

bash for 7.0 and 7.1 has been patched and they are in their respective untested repositories.
its strongly suggested that users update bash to these new versions

7.0 is  bash-4.2 "3vl70" in untested
7.1 is 4.2.048 in untested

mtp-gvfs has been merged into upstream gvfs.  I got the gvfs package built for 7.1 and it is currently in the untested repository.  Please test and report back.

Build logs are here

Fantastic.  I'm going to rebuild the netbook with the latest 2.2.6 build this evening and then I'll test it.

vcpufreq has been removed from the actual ISO. You need to install from gslapt.

vcpufrequ still doesn;t work on 64 bit rc 226 yet.
regarding overclocked CPU, vl7l rc226  simply couldn't   show  the real speed of overclocked CPU at all.

intel  e5700 cpu overclocked to 3.75Ghz from Bios, under windows it can recognized it as cpu@3,75.under vector, it still shows as 3.0G, which's not the real speed of cpu.

I wanted to transfer some files from my LG Volt running Android Kit Kat 4.4.2 and noticed that the device wasn't recognized in Thunar.  libmtp is installed (good) but mtp-gvfs isn't even available in the repository.  For recent Android devices to be recognized as filesystems in Thunar that's a must.

There were indeed installer problems in RC2. Latest candidate is RC2.2.6. You can wait for RC3 or final release (one or the other drops soon), or take a look at what's-the-latest in http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/

Ah, that explains why I get some unmet dependencies on certain packages. I guess I'll just try this version until RC3 or Final is released.

I would like to add that there is little arch specific in our development process now, and 32 and 64 bits should be synced and pretty much the same.
That's good to hear.
