New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix accidental ABI breakage caused by httpd-2.2.18.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/httpd-2.2.19-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. Revert ABI breakage in 2.2.18 caused by the function signature change of ap_unescape_url_keep2f(). This release restores the signature from 2.2.17 and prior, and introduces ap_unescape_url_keep2f_ex(). Apache httpd-2.2.18 is considered abandoned. All users must upgrade.

Where to find the new packages:
