Awesome, thanks for the info I dint think anything about pattens. Hats off to you all for all of the hard work.

I still would like to see a new XFce version appear in Slackware like 4.10 and maybe some additions to /extra that expand the functionality packages already included like network-manager-applet.

How long to mature XFCE 4.10 for Slackware ? Whether XFCE 4.10 is ready for stability ? I only use default XFCE 4.6.2 until now.

When 14 comes out, I might dual-boot it with -current. About time I had a little excitement in my life, and it'll be cheaper than viagra.

Where can I get and how can I run AlienBOB's rsync script I am looking for update to the latest software
Quote:
So, what was updated? The highlights of this batch are:

the version of the next release is known: it will be “Slackware 14″.
kernel is now 3.2.21 – we will likely stick with the 3.2 series since that will get long-term support.
KDE moved up to 4.8.4 (meaning that I can remove my own packages for that version from my ktown repository).
gcc was bumped to 4.7.1 to accompany the new kernel.
glibc was patched to fix a regression
python got updated to 2.7.3 (the switch from the old 2.6.x version meant that every package needed to be recompiled which depends on python)
the network scripts (rc.inet1) got support for setting up betwork bridges – something I use every day because it allows me to make my Virtual Machines accessible from other computers in my LAN.
lots of other individual updates (the complete ChangeLog.txt entry of “Mon Jun 25 05:17:48 UTC 2012” measures more than 300 lines)
I will appreciate it
