14..1 release might be today
 
ANNOUNCE.14_1 has been updated today.

Yeah, but that was just to fix the FF/TB version numbers. I'm not sure that it's really a sign. Besides, RELEASE_NOTES hasn't even been touched yet.

Just a guess. ;)

Dangit! I never guess it right! ;-)

Is your guess any better than the next fellows'? Since you are so sure of yourself, maybe you'd like to hazard a guess as to when it really will be ready...

I just can't wait. Converted/switched my Dell Inspiron 700m laptop from 14.0 Stable to -current...just can't wait :)
It is up runnung now. Execellent!

Tongue-in-cheek right? :)

guys, gabytf seems to be losing it!

"Tongue-in-cheek right?" Of course!

Well, I guess it wasn't 'today', or even 'tomorrow' for that matter. Pat moves in mysterious ways.

If he doesn't hurry up though he's going to get more and more people requesting more and more new stuff be included and it'll never get released. ;)


Are we there yet? :p

I think 14.1 will be Christmas edition :D and a new logo for Lilo with Santa Claus:D

Wondering how much trouble it would be to download -current and update it with slackpkg rather than wait for the DVD... I prefer clean installs over updating/upgrading.

ruario 11-05-2013 03:49 PM

Sure, make your own install media based on -current as it is now and update the final few changes via slackpkg.

In fact if you don't care about any of the changes to the install media itself (e.g. UEFI support) you could just use your 14.0 install media to install -current (you don't even need to download it locally, just do a network install pointed to a nearby -current mirror).

mostlyharmless 11-05-2013 04:26 PM

That's just the thing - I do care about the UEFI support. I already downloaded rc1, for testing purposes, but there have been some changes since then.. or I could use Didier's new slint. I'm just hoping any moment that RELEASE_NOTES gets an update.. :)

ruario 11-05-2013 04:39 PM

You can just update with slackpkg in that case
