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.

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...

Tongue-in-cheek right?

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?

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.

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).

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..

You can just update with slackpkg in that case
