New irssi packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1,

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/irssi-0.8.15-i486-1_slack13.0.txz:  Upgraded.

    - Check if an SSL certificate matches the hostname of the server we are
      connecting to.
    - Fix crash when checking for fuzzy nick match when not on the channel.
      Reported by Aurelien Delaitre (SATE 2009).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-1155
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-1156
  (* 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
directly 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.
