Slackware 8.1rc3 is released for testing... it won't be long now.
a/devs-2.3.1-i386-9.tgz: Added more IDE devices, and patched MAKEDEV to do
the same. Suggested by Greg Roelofs.
a/shadow-4.0.3-i386-3.tgz: Patched adduser to reject uppercase in usernames
so that you don't have to wait for useradd to reject it at the very end.
Thanks to Stuart Winter and "xcp".
a/sysvinit-2.84-i386-17.tgz: Edited rc.M to prevent a bogus error message
when using a UMSDOS root partition.
Something like 50/50 now on patches vs. updates. Remember though, Patrick doesn't release on a schedule, so he may find a pile of things that piss him off and push this back to July. Also, this is still basically one man vs. monsters like RedHat, Mandrake and *ominous drum roll* United Linux, so after you download the ISOs, burn 'em, and have your 8.1 box up and running, do what I do, and buy the boxed set anyway.
If base got renumbered, we're talking days... okay, maybe hours:

a/aaa_base-8.1.0-i386-3.tgz: Make sure the version number will be ready.
a/pkgtools-8.1.1-i386-6.tgz: Fixed a bug using ROOT= with upgradepkg.
zipslack/: Updated aaa_base, pkgtools, sysvinit, and util-linux packages.
