Description

New mozilla-thunderbird packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/mozilla-thunderbird-1.5.0.9-i686-1.tgz: Upgraded to thunderbird-1.5.0.9. This upgrade fixes several possible security bugs. For more information, see: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#thunderbird ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com? Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab (http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for additional mirror sites near you.
