Hi there! I'm still alive, but indeed rather busy. I was hoping things would 
have cleared up by now, but alas...

I updated to 6.1.44 in my repo just this week, doing the same for SBo is on my 
TODO list. However, can't provide any timeline :-/

Is there a specific feature/bugfix you *need* from the newer version though? 
Generally, the version on SBo should work "just fine". If it's just about 
running the "latest and greatest", you should be able to fetch the SlackBuild 
from my -current or 15.0 repo (or even the packages). I don't typically update 
my scripts on SBo anymore unless there's a specific reason.
