10.2, and 11.0 to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnupg-1.4.6-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to gnupg-1.4.6.  This release fixes a severe and exploitable
  bug in earlier versions of gnupg.  All gnupg users should update to the
  new packages as soon as possible.  For details, see the information
  concerning CVE-2006-6235 posted on lists.gnupg.org:
    http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2006q4/000491.html
  The CVE entry for this issue may be found here:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6235
  This update also addresses a more minor security issue possibly
  exploitable when GnuPG is used in interactive mode.  For more information
  about that issue, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-6169
  (* 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.
