Confused: My /etc/slackpkg/mirrors has 13.37, 13.1 & current - what is 13.37?

Is 13.37 the newest, stable release or something?

I have pre-ordered the newest version of the DVD - is 13.37 what will come on the DVD when it arrives?

13.37 is the official numeric title of the forthcoming release. I you have pre-ordered it should be 13.37 which is to be released soon. It should tell you that when you ordered it like this.

13.37 isn't released yet, therefore these directories don't exist. They will, as soon as 13.37 will be released.
Currently 13.37 is in the release candidate state, so it will come soon.

You have uncommented a mirror in the listing within the Slackware 13.37 section in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors.
Until 13.37 is officially released, use a mirror from the -current section.

"Am I doing something wrong?"
You can't download a version that does not exist yet, it will be released soon.

You can download from the latest stable version (13.1)
or current (not stable)

or wait a day or two or...

sorry too slow writing...
