Slackware does not have a set release schedule. As onebuck said it will be released when Mr. Volkerding decides it is ready.

Slackware is predictably released at random intervals.

Ahh yes, The Mad Archdruid of Oldham:

Some say, that on the stillest of late May evenings if you listen really hard, you may hear his haunting Druidic chant of "Are we there yet?" and that only the most unwise of felines will venture out on such a night.
