Getting close! Hopefully we've cleared out most of the remaining issues
and are nearly ready here. We'll call this release candidate 2.
Unless there's a very good rationale, versions are frozen.
Any reports of remaining bugs will be gladly taken, though
From PV, so it is close.

This is almost a traditional question now... It's part of using Slackware and if someone doesn't ask, the release might be cursed and won't be released.

Nice list! Reminds of the old joke:

A. Virgin on the ridiculous.

Maybe you should consider the following thread as well: The previous Slackware releases.

When you're 13.37, there's no need for further revisions.

Remember that the Slack that can be spoken is not the eternal Slack. The next version has always been and shall always be; 13.37 and 14.0 are merely pebbles along the bank of the stream.
