New Slackware Version Released

I've been running Slackware -current for the last few months, with mixed success due to issues with the kernel on my hardware. I hope those have been resolved because -current has just been marked as the next stable version, 13.37. This new version updates version 13.1, but is more elite.

  • Choice of kernel version in the "a" series, or in testing

  • gcc 4.5.2 compiler toolset

  • glibc-2.13

  • XFCE 4.6.2

  • Firefox 4.0

I will probably go with a 2.6.38.x kernel. Also, I am sticking with Firefox 3.6.x for now. The new Firefox version "moves the furniture around" quite a bit, and will take some getting used to.
