Porteus-v5.01 updates

Porteus-5.01 updates

For those who are unaware, in the Porteus Setting Centre (see menu>System/Administration>), there is an "Porteus Updater" tool.
This tool checks for available updates to the base modules and enables the downloading those updated modules and replacement of the old modules(upon reboot).
The ISOs and modules on the server have also been updated.

As of October 4, there is only one update: 002-xorg to address a security issue with libvpx and webm related codecs.
I also encourage you to update to the latest web browsers for the same reason (and a webp issue). All of the server versions have been updated.
