I figured it was coming today or tomorrow. I think this is a very cool Slackware release.

Thanks for the heads up, Eric.

time for me to fire up aliens mirror script again and get the changed packages - saves me having to d/l the whole dvd again - just rsync the difference between rc2 and final

Wow, that was actually unexpected. Great news and big gongrats to Pat. Great timing, considering I'm going to have to install Slack on my computer in a couple of days and I would have not gone with release candidates.

Very cool, man:-)

My DVD writer just broke down and I'm going on a holiday in a couple of days.

Slackware 12 will have to wait for two weeks...

Hi all,

I've been following the changelog for -current, and haven't seen the new Emacs 22.1 listed. Is it included in Slackware 12? I hope so!

About how much space would a full install require?
