Maybe just perception but this feels a bit faster.

The 32 bit hard float port is complete in current!

It's necessary continue in current?
Or it will be a time that is possible switch to stable?

https://arm.slackware.com/releases/

In "Slackware ARM release history" when the release date of the hard float port became available and "version" switch to 14.2, can I change to stable?

EDIT:
I'm testing this on a RPi3 that was running Raspbian.
I hope that in time I can put the slackwarearm hard float port in all my RPis.

"current" in Slackware means "development branch" rather than "most recent stable release". I have changed the table to include both names, since it's confusing for newcomers.


14.2 was the last release of Slackware ARM that used software floating point.

The next stable release of Slackware ARM will use hardware floating point and will be Slackware 15.0. There is no date for this (as there never is) but it's likely to be a long way away.

Do You have any idea of the virality potential of this statment?

There will be a bunch of "when will 15.0 be released?" threads

Won't stop people debating amongst themselves. Anybody with a keen eye can see it's going to be 15.0 since it's already baked into a package.
