Check out the changes in slackware-current!


Hey all:

If you haven't played with slackware-current latealy take a look at a recent changelog and you will be amazed. Some highlights for me:

Kernel 2.4.22
Mysql 4.0.14
Alsa 0.9.6 -- That's right, Alsa! OSS is now 'blacklisted' in hotplug.

And plenty others. In fact, if you check the matrix on distrowatch, slackware-current is nearly totally up to date in all of the core packages. I think only GCC lags behind with 3.2x in use, and 3.3x in testing...

Anyway, slackware-current gives me my fix for the latest and greatest, and is incredibly stable. 9.1 is going to be amazing....I'm hoping Gnome 2.4 will find it's way in...

-Charlie
