There is no release date for Slackware, It gets released when Pat and team feel its ready. On average this happens every 6 to 12 months.

Gotta like that about the Slackware team. I really how they stay true to their objectives and goals; it's such a rarity these days.

Ha-ha, it would seem that this is the case.
If the Slackware team follows past precedent then the next version of Slackware will be 13.2. There is no pre-set release date. Patrick will release the next stable version of Slackware after it has been thoroughly tested and it meets his standards for excellence.

Is anyone sporting enough to wager a guess on when, perhaps judging from where "current" is right now?

Note: I tend to not touch current.
