9.0 is a beta release?


Just want to ask the expert here is slackware 9.0 a beta release?
My friends told me that 9.0 is a official beta release. Is it true and it is not stable yet?

Slackware 9.0 is the official stable release. It's only beta when it's "current", and then it becomes a release candidate, and then stable.

stable kernel 2.4.20
stable kde3.1
stable gnome2.2
X4.3
gcc3.2.2

why it's beta version?


although i think galeon 1.3.3 is not mature enough(well browser is a big part in computing)
