Just finished installing the --current update now. I told the girl (name escapes me) over at the Slackware Store a while back that this release is looking like the best in years, and I'm even more convinced of that now!
I did, however, find one minor bug when my ntp.conf got over-written again: the default is still calling
server pool.ntp.org iburst
There has been a new command for a few years now specifically for pool servers called, appropriately, "pool". The main effect is to automagically call up to 4 servers from the round-robin. Thus, the correct command would be
pool pool.ntp.org iburst
or, as it appears in my computer,
pool us.pool.ntp.org iburst
Otherwise, waiting with baited breath for the release!
Very impressive update! I know what I'm going to do after work.
Even though the ChangeLog says that everything's frozen, I have a tiny request: could Mercurial be updated to the latest version (2.7.2)? Version in -current (2.2.2) is quite old now, also I've been actively using newest versions at work and haven't bumped into any problems. Oh, and it feels a bit unfair that Git got its share of updates, while Mercurial was left neglected, sitting in a corner all alone.
If it's too late, well, I guess I can only blame myself for not asking this earlier.
