It's out, out, out!

Quote:

After over a year of development (including the beta release and several release candidates to get everything polished up) we're proud to announce the availability of the new stable release. You'll find updates throughout the system, with the latest compilers and development tools, and recent versions of applications, window managers, desktop environments, and utilities. The Linux kernel is updated to version 3.10.17 (part of the 3.10.x kernel series that will be getting long-term support from the kernel developers). The x86_64 version of Slackware also adds support for installing and booting on systems running UEFI firmware.

For additional information, see the official announcement and the release notes. For a complete list of included packages, see the package list.

Build scripts for all kinds of additional software for Slackware 14.1 can be found on the slackbuilds.org website.

Need help? Check out our documentation site, docs.slackware.com. Stop by and share your knowledge!

Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of the Slackware 14.1 release from the Slackware Store. The discs are off to replication, but we're accepting pre-orders for the official 6 CD set and the DVD. The CD set is the 32-bit x86 release, while the DVD is a dual-sided disc with the 32-bit x86 release on one side and the 64-bit x86_64 release on the other. Thanks to our subscribers and supporters for keeping Slackware going all these years.

Thanks to the Slackware team for all the hard work getting 14.1 ready for action! And of course, thanks to all the open source developers upstream, and to the Slackware community on linuxquestions.org for all the help with bug reports, suggestions, and patches. We couldn't have done it without you.

Enjoy the new stable release!

Pat and the Slackware crew

Keep Slack Alive!
 
As PV says, the best way to support Slackware IS TO USE IT!!! USE IT EVERY DAY! Make it your #1 operating system!

I have for years and will continue to do so! Btw, thanks for adding GRUB.

Congratulations to Pat & everyone who's helped! Thanks! I've been on Debian for Etch/Lenny/Squeeze, but was on Slackware 8.1 to 10.2 beforehand, I feel like giving this a go so am downloading now via torrent! Only 1h22m to go!

23 countries in my swarm -- and a special Hi! to the Slacker in Angola :D

Paulo2 11-08-2013 10:58 PM

I will be downloading and seeding cd#1 (my dvd drive doesn't boot) and 32 bit dvds :)
The cd#1 is just in case if I break something and need to repair lilo or something else :D

Paulo2 11-09-2013 08:06 AM

12 hours after my last post I started downloading cd#1 at
astonishing(for me :D) 800-900kBps, it is a torrent of bits for sure :)
just 14 minutes, really impressive.

But I uploaded just 2MB :scratch: it seems that nobody wants the cds anymore.

Now getting the dvd :)

gmartin 11-09-2013 03:13 PM

113 GB seeded so far and counting. A truly international band of seeders/leechers in the peer list!

enine 11-09-2013 06:19 PM

I'm running it on my laptop now. Took less time to install clean than to download, my fast 10M connection took about two hours to download.

zbreaker 11-11-2013 02:17 PM

Happily seeding both 32 & 64 bit DVD's :)

ag33k 11-15-2013 01:21 PM
