Hold your horses brian. We haven't even started the "Big, Silly, Just for fun, Sweepstakes" yet!

P.S. I'll reserve that date for you, but I don't think you're gonna win this time.

Okay, I get it now. It will be released when I can take the pebble from your hand.

By the way, what's the pet name for the forthcoming release -- Slacking Sloth?

No, we don't need any silly names, any alliterative animals, any Pixar puppet personnel. A number, that's all. KISS.

Slackware has deadlines of quality not time. Absolutely fine by me!

I've consulted some zombie chickens (or are they cats, it's hard to tell) and they confirm the next version of slackware will be 13.666.

The number of legs ought to give you a clue...

Unless they're some sort of Frankenchicken.

Statistically a new release will be out by 8 months from the last release. Sometimes more and sometimes less. So then about January/February nest year you might start expecting for some release preparations.

Ref. to previous releases:

10.0 June 23, 2004
10.1 February 2, 2005
10.2 September 14, 2005
11.0 October 2, 2006
12.0 July 1, 2007
12.1 May 2, 2008
12.2 December 10, 2008
13.0 August 26, 2009
13.1 May 24, 2010

Statistics are good, however, I've found that swinging a dead cat over my shoulder, using divining rods, and staring at cold tea leaves yields acceptable results when predicting release dates for Slackware stable.
Praise Bob.

You guys should run -current. It changes much more often than stable. However, it is less exciting than anticipating a new release.
