Cool Slackware 14.0 x86_64 stable is released!


Great news!

We are there!

Quote from the 64-bit changelog:

Slackware 14.0 x86_64 stable is released!

We're perfectionists here at Slackware, so this release has been a long
time a-brewing. But we think you'll agree that it was worth the wait.
Slackware 14.0 combines modern components, ease of use, and flexible
configuration... our "KISS" philosophy demands it.

The ISOs are off to be replicated, a 6 CD-ROM 32-bit set and a dual-sided
32-bit/64-bit x86/x86_64 DVD. Please consider supporting the Slackware
project by picking up a copy from store.slackware.com. We're taking
pre-orders now, and offer a discount if you sign up for a subscription.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen. The Slackware team, the
upstream developers, and (of course) the awesome Slackware user community.

Have fun! :-)
Congratulations and thanks so much to Pat and the crew for the best release of the best distro ever!

Yeah, I was so enthusiastic, that I posted in the wrong forum... Thanks for notifying me, where the party actually is ongoing!
Asked the mod to delete my post, or the thread as a whole.

Anyone else having problems with the torrents? I get "Tracker returned an error: requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker" with Transmission.

Official ISOs can be found here at the moment: http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware/ (no source ISOs) or http://slackware.org.uk/slackware/
The torrent tracker is not up yet but we are working on that.

Thanks, I won't use the ISO (can create a mini-iso anyways when my mirrors are synced), I only want to help seeding, so I can wait until the torrents are up.
