This is the 4th full build in the Slackware ARM project history.

All packages have been rebuilt/upgraded. This is the 4th full build in the
Slackware ARM project history.

My rpi3 are in the process of upgrade-all, anyone else get it done, how'd it go?

Congratulations to DrMozes!

I know well that on the ARM platforms a full rebuild is a hard thing to do.

Great news indeed! Congrats!

Was this triggered by the release of gcc 8.1?

https://gcc.gnu.org/

P.S. Meanwhile I checked a mirror and learned that -current is still on gcc 7.3.0

The change log states the reason for the rebuild.
gcc 8 was tested by Patrick but many packages don't build with it, without patching.

Thanks for the clarifications/details. It's the first reason (not much detailed) from the Slackware ARM -current change log that got me asking myself if gcc 8.1 was included:
"There were two primary motivations for rebuilding everything in the main tree. The first was to switch to the new C++ ABI."
But now, reading through the change log of the main x86 -current tree I found out that the rebuilt update was on Thu Apr 19 01:04:06 UTC 2018, which was before the gcc 8.1 release.

Keep up the good work!

rpi2 here, after a few hours of upgrade all seems to work well, no errors/breakages noticed ATM. Still need to check the new config files and merge the changes, if any.
