Just a heads up that the Signal-Desktop SlackBuild (not signal-desktop)
will no longer work after 15th Nov 2018:

> After 380 days of extended support, the legacy Chrome version of
> Signal Desktop will stop working on November 15, 2018. The new
> standalone version of Signal Desktop is available now, and it has
> received regular updates in the past year -- including numerous
> feature enhancements and significant performance improvements.


There's a built-in tool in the final release (0.47.0) to migrate from
legacy to the new stand-alone version (the signal-desktop binary
SlackBuild). So Signal-Desktop should probably be updated and the README
too to reflect the situation.

I've cc'd the maintainer.
