Maybe we should skip a few numbers, it's been done before, to stay ahead of Fedora (it's up to 14! ). The next release will be Slackware 17.0.

Alternatively, the version could be 17.3 - This would definitely keep the rest of the world busy trying to figure out why 17.3. In the meantime Pat would have enough time to add time traveling support to Slackware startup scripts.

The wait is longer than the team members or anyone expects. Seems a 'Slackard' named volkerdi has been hanging around the forum. He has only made 64 posts having signed up in 02 so who would expect that input to be of any value. Heck my Dell 2350 does not even boot without pressing F1 because I would not buy a replacement fan from Dell.

Can't spend more time posting here I have real work to do.

ppd

ps Yes there is a huge smile on my face, which looks ridiculous because my cheek has a tongue in it.

No corruption or hypocrisy within the organization, so WikiLeaks lost interest ;-)

Ha-ha that guy is in serious need of a rug!
13.2 is coming to mirror near you in the coming days/weeks/months.
I sense a disturbance in the force.

Ahh, that explains why he thinks Win7 is a serious OS.

Hi Dave,
No. You've got a 1337 Slacker over there, that brianL guy. Ask him?

God, I hope not. There are a few things that haven't been released yet I would like to see included.

Meanwhile, somewhere at CIA HQ.

CIA Agent: So, Mr. Volkerding... When will 13.2 be released?
*glug* *glug* *glug*
Pat (muffled): *glug* When *glug* *splutter* it's ready! *glug* *splutter* *cough*
CIA Agent: *sigh* Someone fetch another barrel of water!

They wouldn't dare waterboard Pat. That would bring down THE WRATH OF BOB on them.

I think that thinking about what everyone else is thinking of when the release will be is just thinking for nothing except for the sake of thinking, I think.

More or less, but I suppose it's not a bad way to spend a sleepy afternoon. Me, I'm hoping Pat sits on it until KDE 4.6, Koffice 2.3, and a bug-patched libxml for x86_64 makes it in.

What's wrong with libxml?
