It's about time for another version jump.

Anyone else remember the jump from Slackware 4 to Slackware 7?

Brian, as we all know that Slackware is rock solid, do you mean that Pat is in fact Sisyphus under another name and that during -current's brewing we can watch him climbing the hill again?

I am pretty sure from now on Slackware releases will be synchronized with Firefox releases. For the record FF is at its 15th release today! Crazy or not?

All this talk on upcoming versions. I'm still waiting for 5.0.

I thought we already have that... it's called -current.

That's for testing. For stable we could use the following convention:

- Slackware 13.37 / Slackware64 13.37
- Slackware SR (Stable Release) / Slackware64 Stable Release
- Slackware YASR (Yet Another Stable Release)
- Slackware ESR (Extremely Stable Release)
- Slackware ORATESRR (One Release After The Extremely Stable Release Release)
- Slackware MSTTOSRR (More Stable Than The Original Stable Release Release)
- Slackware MAR (Much Anticipated Release)
- Slackware W(AS)R (Wonderful (And Stable) Release)



Transparent and clean.

Debian has three branches/versions/whatever, so why not Slackware?
Debian stable == Slackware stable
Debian testing == Slackware current
Debian experimental == Slackware OMGWTFHasHappenedNow!?!?!?
