Somehow, I have a 7.0 with 1.0.0g, 18 Jan 2012.
Examining further, 1.0.0g and 1.0.0d are in extra. No idea why in extra.
But looking at vabs, no real idea how they got there. A scan of the SlackBuild did turn up a line that might patch later versions to report 0.9.8 to some software, not sure.
BTW: repo maintenance or slow scripts temporarily blocked upgrading on 7.1. If you tried prior to the "last edit" time of this post, try again. Seems to work now.
