First of all the latest version of OpenSMTPD is 6.8.0p2 as shown at

Slackware 14.2 can build version  6.0.3p1 but no higher versions without
installing a new OpenSSL or LibreSSL.

I patch 6.0.3p1 with security fixes from fix announcements for OpenBSD

I run it online 24/7. It has been secure for me for now...

I have a new build of 6.8.0p2 for Slackware 15.0 but Slackbuilds.org does
not allow me to update.

Does anyone know when we will be able to update our SlackBuilds for
Slackware 15.0?
