Thank you to Pat and the Slackware team.

And I thought I wasn't gonna have any fun this weekend.

Seriously guys, thank you, you gentlemen give me reason to compute.

For what it's worth (quantitatively, one seeder), I've downloaded the Slackware64 14.0 iso, and intend to seed it for, hopefully, the next couple of weeks. I have 25GB/month broadband, so make use of it fellow Slackers!

Now the wait is for slackbuilds.org to catch up.
why don't you just clone from git:

Code:
    git clone git://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds.git
This creates a folder called “slackware”. Move its contents to /var/lib/sbopkg/local (I made sure it was empty). Then from sbopkg select to use the local repository.

I prepared too some easy instructions for setting up sbopkg with slackbuilds.org git master (this way you can sync easily with "sbopkg -r")

http://bit.ly/setup-sbopkg-with-SBo-git-master

the SlackBuild scripts in the master branch are mainly already usable for 14.0, there are some small fixups still going on but you can try it

Congratulations! Can't wait for the subscription DVD, so I'm already downloading it on my slow DSL connection. Pity one cannot download t-shirts and baseball caps.

Oh baby!

I was planning on spending the weekend preparing for migration to the new 14. Seems I will do both preparing for installation, and actually doing it.

Congrats, and thank you so much, Pat and the Slackware team!

Just had a message from the ancient Mayan gods. They say because everybody's so excited about the release of Slackware 14, they've cancelled the Apocalypse.
Praise "Bob"!

Mr Postman, look and see,
If there's a Slackware DVD for me.
