Packages included in the Slint64-14.2.1 ISO, coming from the Slint repository

Translations of this page:
The Slint64-14.2 ISO includes packages coming from two repositories:

A package coming from Slint will replace a package coming from Slackware, regardless of their respective versions.

A * after the package name in the list below indicates that a package of the same name exists in the Slackware repository. Then the rationale for shipping one (different, but in a few cases) from the Slint repository instead is indicated as a comment.
