Hey folks, I'm calling this a beta!


The ChangeLog.txt tells all:

Hey folks, I'm calling this a beta!
Also noteworthy: the addition of grub 2.0 to the A/ series, and the move to Firefox 24 ESR.

I'll upload my rebuilt glibc multilib packages as soon as possible.

Will we be able to choose at install time whether to use LILO or Grub?

I was just wondering the same question.

But great to see the addition of Grub.
now bash-completion from extra to standard and it would even be better

Sure! But GRUB will require some command line work.

I am ambivalent about Grub. My only attempt to use it was not successful (ca. 2003-4 I think).

To this point I am totally happy with Lilo and will not change until I have a reason.

But curious - was UEFI the driver behind the inclusion of Grub? Or something else like, "by popular demand"?

Will there be an option to not use the ESR of Firefox, like an updated Slackbuild in /extra?

Is there a chance that the new version (0.95.5) of WindowMaker will be included in Slackware 14.1?

Yes. I think UEFI was the only reason for having GRUB2 added and in the A/ series even.

Mesa 9.2 is a new development release. People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick with a previous release or wait for Mesa 9.2.1.
