« on: November 16, 2008, 03:37:34 pm »

Uelsk8si has packaged the latest version of gnutls for VL 6.0. Please note that this is a security patch and bugfix release.  Please also note that this package is in the patches repository.  VL 6.0 users should now enable patches in gslapt or in their /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file.

Please note that this package may cause breakage of some existing apps.  We are particularly concerned about pidgin, amsn, and vlc.  If this package breaks anything on your system please report it ASAP so that new, replacement packages can be built.
