Given that the release date is so near, I seriously doubt that Pat will consider updating the kernel.

However, if you are reasonably comfortable with compiling, this would be a good place to start.

Kernel 3.10.17 is long term and it's late in the game for a new release. If you need or want a new kernel then get it from:

Then for some helpful reading;
From Slackware®-Links;
Kernel-HOWTO <- Intro & Compile
Compiling the Linux Kernel
Building a Linux Kernel from source <- Eric Hameleers (Alien)’s Wiki pages
Building a new 2.6.x kernel with Slackware® 12.0

I'm actually a little surprised that upping to .18 wasn't considered as the changelog shows several bug fixes for what appear to be severe problems.

Only a little, though, considering how fixing one bug almost always introduces two more...I'll trust Pat and the gang on this one.
