ETA Slack 13.2


Howdy,

I know that 13.2 will be released when its ready, I was just wondering when that might be. Anyone care to take a guess?

It seems you answered the question by the inclusion of the first sentence of your request.

I've read my tealeaves. Looked in my crystal ball. Consulted the I Ching and the Tarot. Sacrificed every living thing that crawls, walks, flies, swims, or slithers. But I can't get a definite date!

I hear you, man. I've consulted with our local shaman and she is being evasive. Danged if I know.

Why so early? I'm kinda hoping it has KDE 4.6, myself.

My guess is 13.2 will be released before 13.3

Assuming that 13.2 is the next release version.

Looking at the history of Slack, the next release should be 14 But even the oldests polish Highlanders don't know this, so this must be mistery even in Heaven

Stay cool - You will be noticed, when it's ready

Well, if the changelogs for -current are anything to go by, the next one will be 13.2.
As per BrianL's suggestion, I keep monitoring the wikileaks website, however, they don't
seem to have any intel on Slackware, either.
