Software Update

Hash: SHA1

Here are some updates on software packages. :)

Zlib home page: http://www.cdrom.com/pub/infozip/zlib/
Latest version:  ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/infozip/zlib/zlib-1.1.1.tar.gz
Debian version: zlib1g_1.0.4-7.1.deb (Sep 23 1997)

   John E. Davis has released new versions of SLang, JED, SLrn, and most:
   Note that you have to tweak the Makefile a bit to get slang compiled
as a shared library file (libslang.so) .. You need to remove all of
those deprecated ELF linking flags; "-shared" is enough.
   Also, `ldd libslang.so.1.0.x` doesn't seem to work, but if you put
it somewhere (eg /lib, $LD_LIBRARY_PATH) where ld looks for libs, it
works fine.

   Net-Tools ftp: ftp://ftp.cs-ipv6.lancs.ac.uk/pub/Code/Linux/Net_Tools/
Latest (dated) version: net-tools-980213.tar.gz
Last (numeric) version: net-tools-1.432.tar.gz
Debian version: netbase_3.04-1.deb (ifconfig -V: net-tools pre1.34)

   PGP 5.0i release is out for unix (source code) --> www.pgpi.com
NB: It has to be linked with RSAREF for RSA support in the USA.

   FYI, check on www.linuxhq.com and freshmeat.unreal.org (link on
LinuxHQ) once in a while for kernel and software updates, respectively.
