Alternatively, instead of trying to be all subtle, you could just come out and ask him!

HEY! Pat!.. These fellas would appreciate a exiv2 bump!

I vote for "π", that's my lucky number. But I'm thinking of change it because I seldom win on lotteries with it.

"I hear", and "They say", are the biggest liars there are

Welcome to LQ @sollericos I imagine though, that Slackware 14, if we don't got straight to Slackware 42, will indeed be released after Firefox 4.

But for now let's just try and focus on breaking Slackware 13.37 RC2 okay? The sooner we can't break it, the sooner that version will be released, and only a few L33t folks know when that will be (and I'm not one of them).

You'll get used to it, but if it is any consolation, you can always run Slackware -current, and never have to worry about the last several stable releases you missed coz were to busy slackin' to even notice

Im very surprised iptraf-ng made it to -current but procinfo-ng didnt.
I would have bet for the exact opposite to happen.

Hi Onebuck, I don't feel comfortable with RC versions (I use them only if I really need them) and I don't know if Pat does to release SL stable with RC packages.

Tallship, next time I'll give you any reference from my information sources (I'm a newby here and maybe anywere) but I can't remember the site where I red this guess.

Since 2.1 I've been working only with stable releases (never -current) and I'll be pleased if someone can say me if I can trust -current for a production workstation, based in yor experience.

Oh no problem at all We hear (pundit) that stuff all the time, and the only person who ever really knows for sure is Patrick, and maybe just a few more in the innermost circle.

Don't believe anything you ever hear about Slackware release dates unless it comes from the man himself - and you'll see it in the changelog.

On the otherhand, even for non-slackers, it has become almost a favorite pastime to guess when... "The Moment" has actually arrived

Well I wish I could say that, but because it actually isn't specified as a *Stable* release, no matter what I or anyone else thinks here, *-current* is less than that (again, regardless of how stable it has been historically).

I hope that helps

It is evolved from testing the '-current' to a RC for hopefully getting the bugs out if any to be released as a stable.

Look at CURRENT WARNING.

I would not recommend running '-current' on a production machine. RC2 is so close, why not wait for stable. I always work on '-current' for testing purpose but on machines/partitions that if there's a problem I can revert. No interruptions.

Hmm. todays changelog for -current:

Quote:
xap/mozilla-firefox-4.0rc1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
It is time to push this into the main tree. It's unlikely that we'll see
significant changes prior to Firefox 4.0 final. Probably the first security
fixes for the Firefox 4.0 branch will come with Firefox 4.0.1, which is the
branch that we'll want to be tracking in Slackware 13.37's /patches. If for
some reason you want to stick with Firefox 3.6.x, it will be tracked in
Slackware 13.1's /patches for as long as they support it upstream.
As in: This sollericos guy (or girl) could just be right. I Clearly read that Pat is including FF4 rc1, as he ain't waiting for FF4gold. This means 1337 will have a much longer life-expectation: sure,. FF4 was already included in /testing, but still: This makes me very very happy, and probably takes the pressure of the cooker for the team to get 13.4 or 14 ready.

This decision was probably based (my opinion, not Pat's) on the post on http://planet.mozilla.org/ where the following snippet of agenda was posted:

Code:
Schedule & Progress on Upcoming Releases 
 Firefox 4 (Desktop) 
    *  RC1 looks like it will be the final build, so far no showstoppers found
          o  several issues have been identified as potential ridealongs, meaning we might do a 4.0.1 release
          o  continuing to do triage daily
    *  assuming RC1 holds, the planned ship date is March 22nd at or around 7am PDT
    *  reminder to QA + press that unadvertized MU from 3.5->4.0 and 3.6->4.0 will be available on release day
       (i.e. users will be able to do Help -> Check for Updates to see an update to 4.0)
If Slackware 13.37 ships well after 22 march then you'd have a good chance to see an official 4.0 final included.

Eric
