080920 link-grammar-4.3.8 [VL 5.9]
« on: September 20, 2008, 11:54:00 am »

I've packaged the latest version of link-grammar for VL 5.9.  This is a security patch and bug fix release.  The version of link-grammar provided on the VL 5.9 Standard iso for use with AbiWord plugins contains a buffer overflow security vulnerability.  If you have abiword-plugins installed you probably should upgrade your link-grammar package.

EDIT:  This package has been moved to our patches repository.  If you have patches enabled it should be available via slapt-get or gslapt.
