Hmmmm...i dont think they are too reliable, which line(s) in that changelog gave that moron the impression that Slak 8.1 is out? could it be the header "pre-release"

What a complete moron, also, if this were true it would seem userlocal.com has scooped slackware.com for the news as they have made no announcement yet?

Correct me if im wrong here.

Scooping slackware.com isn't difficult. That site hardly ever updates. There have been two officially released RC's since the last update...
