Slax: what programs are in the official release

I have a question about Slax. When I looked at Build Slax: Slax Apps 6.1.1 it said:
This module is already included in official Slax release, so you don't need to download it separately. However, you may need to add it while using the 'build Slax' feature of this website.
I downloaded the official slax release: slax 6.1.1.

I don't find a lot of the programs in slax apps 6.1.1
I wanted to include Vim and Openoffice. Has this application been tested?
What are the programs from Build Slax that are included in the official release?

Hello All!

Hi Joe,

I've had good luck running the OpenOffice 3.x, Kdegames 3.5.9, and the pinball 0.3.1 game modules under Slax 6.1.1

The following files are included with the official release;

Slax Core 6.1.1 , Slax Xorg 6.1.1 , Slax KDE 6.1.1 , Slax Apps 6.1.1 , Slax KOffice 6.1.1 , and Slax Devel 6.1.1

I added OpenOffice to the "modules" folder and the rest to the "optional" folder (for "on demand" activation through "Module Manager").

Good luck with your build.
