It will be called Slackware 22, to beat M$Win20 &compete with Ubu18 2022 LTS.

It will feature AI pkg mgmt extensions, a new world beyond Mint's saying:
Code:
user@mint ~ $ sysdig -h
The package 'sysdig' is not currently installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install sysdig
Slackware22 will instead ask (in a Siri-like way): Should I install it? [Y/n]
This will work for ANY pkg (even M$only software!) via an AzureCloudAI Google.
This AzureCloudAI+Google integration will make Slackware22 self-healing,
eliminating the automatic Linux TroubleShootButton I invented!!!

Because of these 2 new features, it will obsolete all other OSes by 4/1/18
Ooops, 14 already has. (Rumors about this being a .lp country gov't $Bil pgm are false.)

I'm hoping for Qt5 at least to be included, even if Plasma 5 is deemed not ready yet. Lots of projects are no longer supporting Qt4.

Based on http://ciar.org/ttk/public/delta-slack.html I'd guess no earlier than January but no later than July.

Hopefully by then someone will have a handle on the mysterious PulseAudio problems which plague some users and not others, and the PA that ships will avoid those problems.

By then Plasma should be ready for the big time, but I have no dog in that race, being an fvwm user.

Since it will ship with perl v5.26, SlackBuilds will be required for those perl modules which depended on the old .-in-@INC behavior, probably via slackbuilds.org and not in the Slackware distribution itself. I've been hoping the module authors would fix them themselves, and many of them have, but not all. I'll make time to look at those still broken and write some SlackBuilds.

I expect it tomorrow, I expect it to make my system faster than NASA's super computers, and I expect it to have only the packages I use.

Thumbs up

For Slackware 15, I would expect to keep it simple, keep it strong and keep it stable.

I have zero concerns as nothing feels exceptionally pressing and I have absolute confidence in Mr. Patrick Volkerding's judgment. I have no doubt it will be as good as any previous release and will be done when Patrick is satisfied it's done. I currently find libc++ an obstacle to having a working Discord after it's recent forced update but the obstacle is me in that I'm not willing to spend the time for so many dependencies for such a minor application for which there are easy alternatives. Even some distros based on .debs have experienced difficulties with this "updated" Discord so it's "loss" is worth the greater good Slackware offers.... Stable, Malleable.

This!!! ^^^^^

I've been a happy Slacker since 2004(version 10.0). I completely agree. I trust Mr. Vokerding's judgment; he makes sane development decisions.
I am confident that Slackware 15.0 will be another stellar release.

I am still hoping PostgreSQL will be included in the default Slackware install at some point - including the PHP module for PostgreSQL already compiled in, so that I don't have to uninstall and recompile PHP myself. It seems a little strange that only MariaDB is in - after all PostgreSQL is the "other" major open source SQL database engine.

You don't have to uninstall PHP. You can just use https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...ies/php-pgsql/ or do something equivalent yourself.
