OK, we're going to call this Slackware 12.1-rc1, though there is still some
more minor work to do.  Please help test!  And if we're missing anything major,
please let me know at volkerdi@slackware.com.  Thanks.  :-)

  to the latest versions in -current.

  This version of CUPS fixes some buffer overflows in the GIF image filter
  and in cgiCompileSearch.  Those running CUPS servers should upgrade.

  non-root users to umount hotplugged devices from the command line.
  Thanks to Robby Workman for the suggestion.

  This package has been renamed from xf86-video-amd to avoid confusion with
  other AMD video products.
x/xf86-video-intel-2.2.1-i486-1.tgz:  Reverted to xf86-video-intel-2.2.1.  We
  suspected that might be needed, given the version number and development
  status of the newer driver we tried, but gave it a try anyway.  Probably
  there will be no more driver updates at this point unless bugs are reported
  that newer drivers fix.
xap/pidgin-2.4.1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to pidgin-2.4.1.
