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 Or was the k3b upgrade possible, because it was only a version bump, with no changes of source code?
Thats inaccurate cause that is the case for the latest development release which Slackware never included.
According to the changelogs k3b was last updated in Slackware on May 6th, while the latest k3b devel release, for which the k3b release announcement is talking about, was released on 16th of June, even after 13.1.
I was just asking a question, not making a statement, but I should have done the research you did myself. Thanks for clearing this up, anyway.
But the more: If it's possible for k3b, what about other stuff?
Is the argument, that for the other programs there are released versions included, while for k3b only a development snapshot was part of Slackware 13.1, that could now, finally, be replaced by a released version?
If K3B finally went stable in 13.1, I'm grateful. K3B in 13.0 was highly unstable. If you set a few options it didn't like it would just crash. Granted it was consistently reproducible and therefore avoidable and it still did the basic job... But still. 13.1 had to come out and couldn't wait around for K3B to be properly released before including it.
