Slackware 14.1 is released

Many thanks and congratulations to Pat and the team...

After over a year of development (including the beta release and several release candidates to get everything polished up) we're proud to announce the availability of the new stable release. You'll find updates throughout the system, with the latest compilers and development tools, and recent versions of applications, window managers, desktop environments, and utilities. The Linux kernel is updated to version 3.10.17 (part of the 3.10.x kernel series that will be getting long-term support from the kernel developers). The x86_64 version of Slackware also adds support for installing and booting on systems running UEFI firmware.

For additional information, see the official announcement and the release notes. For a complete list of included packages, see the package list.

Build scripts for all kinds of additional software for Slackware 14.1 can be found on the website.

Need help? Check out our documentation site, Stop by and share your knowledge!

Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of the Slackware 14.1 release from the Slackware Store. The discs are off to replication, but we're accepting pre-orders for the official 6 CD set and the DVD. The CD set is the 32-bit x86 release, while the DVD is a dual-sided disc with the 32-bit x86 release on one side and the 64-bit x86_64 release on the other. Thanks to our subscribers and supporters for keeping Slackware going all these years.

Thanks to the Slackware team for all the hard work getting 14.1 ready for action! And of course, thanks to all the open source developers upstream, and to the Slackware community on for all the help with bug reports, suggestions, and patches. We couldn't have done it without you.

Enjoy the new stable release!

Pat and the Slackware crew


Slackware 14.1 for ARM is also available. For details, see:

It's great to see SlackDocs (a site that I've never visited and probably should visit) get a shout out on the official homepage.

Merci beaucoup.

Thank you very much to all of you for the great work.

Due to the shipping costs for France (15.95$), I will not buy any stuff in Slackware Store. Instead I just made a small donation.

My grateful thanks to all involved. I have been very happy with Slackware-current and the 14.1 release will be another sparkling gem in the Slackware crown.

PS- Nice to see my prediction fulfilled

Thumbs up Studying up and reading all I can....

Excellent work to all involved as well as Pat. I am perusing the Changlogs, Upgrade and also the changes and hints texts to get up to speed . Just wondering how this will work since I am working with Alien's multilib as well. I did setup a Slackware14.0 in a VM with all packages that I am running on my real machine with multilib, to experiment on though
