Here's the latest batch of updates from the SlackBuilds.org team. Sorry
this has taken so long to get out. In the future, we'll be sending out
updates in smaller batches of 10 to 20 on a more regular basis.

Sat Feb 10 02:11:54 UTC 2007
Always beware the calm before the storm...  Another big set of changes is
  here for your viewing pleasure.  In addition to the new and updated scripts,
  we have an announcement:
     As Eric Hameleers announced on the users mailing list, we are now
     providing GnuPG signatures for all of our SlackBuild tarballs.
     Our GnuPG key can be obtained from a keyserver, or you can find it
     on our site at http://slackbuilds.org/GPG-KEY.
  Enjoy the new updates and happy Slacking!
