It's out, out, out!

Quote:
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 slackbuilds.org website.

Need help? Check out our documentation site, docs.slackware.com. 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 linuxquestions.org 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: http://arm.slackware.com

Keep Slack Alive!

As PV says, the best way to support Slackware IS TO USE IT!!! USE IT EVERY DAY! Make it your #1 operating system!

I have for years and will continue to do so! Btw, thanks for adding GRUB.

Mon Nov 4 17:08:47 UTC 2013 Slackware 14.1 x86_64 stable is released! It's been another interesting release cycle here at Slackware bringing new features like support for UEFI machines, updated compilers and development tools, the switch from MySQL to MariaDB, and many more improvements throughout the system. Thanks to the team, the upstream developers, the dedicated Slackware community, and everyone else who pitched in to help make this release a reality. 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.

12 hours after my last post I started downloading cd#1 at
astonishing(for me ) 800-900kBps, it is a torrent of bits for sure
just 14 minutes, really impressive.

But I uploaded just 2MB it seems that nobody wants the cds anymore.

Now getting the dvd

I'm running it on my laptop now. Took less time to install clean than to download, my fast 10M connection took about two hours to download.
