Slackbuilds available for 14.0


I see the wonderful folk at SlackBuilds have updated to 14.0 ! Many thanks.

To get sbopkg to see this, I hacked /etc/sbopkg.conf and simply replaced all occurrences of "13.37" with "14.0" - there was only 1 line. Then in the repos.d subdir, I edited 40-sbo.repo and inserted "SBo 14.0 "SBo repository for Slackware 14.0" _SBo rsync slackbuilds.org::slackbuilds/14.0 GPG".

Then I started sbopkg and kicked off a rsync. Looks like it's working so far ...

Ah - I didn't see that. To be fair, it was under a thread titled "Slackware64 14, problems with compiling packages from slackbuilds.org", so there was no formal announcement that SB14 was available.
Thanx for update tho' @brianL !

You're right, it could be easily missed.
