We have now reached the Slackware 12.1 RC2 milestone. We’re beyond
updating packages or fixing minor cosmetic bugs at this point (actually, we
had hoped to be past that with RC1, but there were still items in need of
attention). What we have here now has proven to be stable for our testers,
so unless some real showstoppers are found, we’ll soon be releasing this as Slackware 12.1-final.
