Having a look at the current state of development it looks like Pat is finishing up and getting ready to release very soon.
I think it will be this month. Just my

First thing I do every morning.

www.google.com

--> Slackware 14.1

First Result:

Slackware Linux 14.1 Beta - DistroWatch.com
distrowatch.com/8058‎
Today Patrick Volkerding declared the "Current" branch beta which means that the upcoming stable Slackware Linux 14.1 is in the final stages of development.


"Sigh"

Like everyone else... chomping at the bit to get a fresh new install going.

That doesn't work since it's at RC3 and distro watch hasn't made any mention of it. Best to view the changelog.txt file.

A fresh install is a good thing, but last time I had upgraded my Slack and everything was fine, I guess it will be the same on next time.
And as it is a multilibs version, I am not dying for re-installing everything.

I was actually basing it on the assumption that when it does release that it will be in the number 1 results spot.

Slackware ARM v13.37 will become EOL (End of Life) on 1st Jan 2014 which means that it'll no longer receive any security patches. Slackware ARM 14.1 will have been released before then, so I recommend that you start to plan any necessary upgrades.
Well, if that isn't an educated guess, but actually inside knowledge, at least it sets an upper bound.

I was teetering on the edge of answering that, but why spoil the mystery :-)

If I'm running -current (which I am), I don't suppose it matters when 14.1 is released does it?

I promise that I'll send the exact answer by email to all those who are willing to pay 1,000,000 dollars to get it.

Email will be sent not later than one full day (24 hours) after the release.
