ExTiX 14.1 is reviewed on Distrowatch.com today (140424). It will probably mean that the number of downloads increases dramatically.

Edit later
Yes, over 3200 downloads in a few hours! Only from SourceForge.net. How many people have downloaded the ISO file from the Swedish Linux Society server I do not know.

Build 140411 of SlackEX 14.1 with kernel 3.14

Additionally could version 4.8.6 of Gimp not open jpg files. To deal with the problem, I had to install version 4.8.10 (latest stable version) of Gimp from source.

As I still had to fix various software problems I took the opportunity to replace...
