A subversion update is available for Slackware

New subversion packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/subversion-1.6.16-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed a remotely triggerable NULL-pointer dereference in mod_dav_svn.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from
Give a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from

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

Also see the "Get Slack" section on for
additional mirror sites near you.
