Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you want to use zarafa 7.1, yes (I'm assuming that you were using the SlackBuild provided by http://slackbuilds.org).
Bear in mind that slackbuilds.org provides slackbuilds for stable versions only. You may try some on -current but there is no guarantee and there are chances that the build will fail. That is actually not a problem with Slackware-current.
More generally -current is provided for testing purposes : if you want stability and do not intent to participate in testing, better stick to -stable releases of Slackware.
PS and yes, boost have changed in -current, this is stated in the ChangeLog.
