This is a quick point release updating the latest sbopkg to version
0.26.1 with some important security improvements.  Here is the brief

  * Implement some security fixes, namely, customize the output of some of the
    menus so only things that can be done as root (i.e. build, install,
    process the queue) are seen by the root user; also add a check to make
    sure only root can install packages and that packages are correctly set
    with root:root permissions.  Thanks to Phillip Warner for the report and
  * Modify SLACKVER in sbopkg.conf so it can be passed at runtime to sbopkg.
    Thanks to TSquaredF for the suggestion.  You may choose to update
    your SLACKVER based on what is in the sbopkg.conf.new.
  * Quiet down the number of messages displayed when updated items are added
    to the queue; thanks to Phillip Warner for the suggestion.
  * Fix issue where sometimes duplicate items would appear in the search
    results dialog; thanks to Phillip Warner for the suggestion.

An updated source tarball and package are available on the sbopkg web
