Slackware 15 would be a disappointment if it came with the 4.19 LTS kernel rather than the newer 5.4 LTS kernel that's coming out very soon.

If there is no obvious hindrance I'd like to suggest that crc32c_intel get's compiled into the kernel
so that hardware accelerated crc32 checksumming can be done in e.g. Btrfs.
For some reason it does not work when crc32c_intel is loaded as a module: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Btrfs
Symbol: CRYPTO_CRC32C_INTEL

Talking Slackware 15 kernel

Actually 4.19 will be out of support next year and we are not even sure if Slackware 15 will be released by that time ...
Code:
Version	Maintainer				Released	Projected EOL
5.4	Greg Kroah-Hartman & Sasha Levin	2019-XX-XX	Dec, 2021
4.19	Greg Kroah-Hartman & Sasha Levin	2018-10-22	Dec, 2020
4.14	Greg Kroah-Hartman & Sasha Levin	2017-11-12	Jan, 2024
From this it seems like the safest bet would be 4.14 that is even longer LTS ...

I would'nt be worried for that. I think Kernel 5.4 is the natural choice for Slackware 15 (Right, Patrick?). I also think 15 is coming close (although I don't have a crystal ball to tell *exactly* when it comes). For now, let's enjoy Current!

I really would like to see Plasma in 15. That would be my biggest request. I also woudn't mind if Patrick removed KDE and the community (AlienBob & slackbuilds.org) took its maintenance). Just my opinion.

In this release cycle we've already gone from 4.4, to 4.9, to 4.14 (and back to 4.9), to 4.19. Nothing is cast in stone. I'm sure @volkerdi will make an appropriate decision at the appropriate time.

ImageMagick - heic support

iPhones (and maybe others) now produce photos with a new encoding (HEIF, stored in HEIC containers) instead of the well-known JPEG...

Upstream ImageMagick-6 has supported .heic pictures since -6.9.9.

Could Slackware ImageMagick be built with support for HEIC?

TIA

Phil

Note: I built ImageMagick 7 with heic support more than one year ago (see thread). It used to require an additional library "Libde265" installed. I built it from https://github.com/strukturag/libde265)

Because of the patent situation on that, no it can't.
