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.
