Slackware 13.1 is released!
That's right, another stable release of Slackware is finally ready to
go. Slackware 13.1 is available in both 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x86_64
editions, and brings with it many major improvements, like KDE SC
version 4.4.3, the 126.96.36.199 Linux kernel, a new toolchain, updated
libraries, and major applications such as Firefox and Thunderbird.
More details may by found in the official announcement and in the
release notes. For a complete list of included packages, see the package
Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of
the Slackware 13.1 release from the Slackware Store. The discs are off
to replication, but we're accepting pre-orders for the official 6 CD set
and the DVD. The CD set is the 32-bit x86 release, while the DVD is a
special edition dual-sided disc with the 32-bit x86 release on one side
and the 64-bit x86_64 release on the other. And, we still have T-shirts
and other Slackware stuff there, so have a look around. Thanks to our
subscribers and supporters for keeping Slackware going all these years.
Thanks are again due to the Slackware crew, the developers of
slackbuilds.org, the community on linuxquestions.org, Slackware IRC
channels, and everyone else who helped out with this release.
Have fun, and enjoy the new stable release!
Pat and the Slackware crew
