rbistolfi has a new libpng package. The previous one, converted from Slackware, wasn't fully compatible with VL. This package should be fully functional. For those who missed the previous announcement the new libpng is a security patch
which closes multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities. Security conscious users may want to upgrade immediately. This package will be moved to patches as soon as we have adequate user testing and know that it really works.
