Talk about other linux distributions, or even other OSes.

Slackware 15

Post by Van_Vinkle » 20. Sep 2019, 15:51

Has anyone (other than Pat Volkerding) idea about when Slackware 15 will be released?
I've been nosing out LQ, but no clues :x .

I don't think that even Pat knows that. Certainly nobody else.

All I can say is its getting closer. :D

Xfce 4.14 is out so PV can check that off the list
Perhaps he is waiting on the next LTS kernel, which should be soonish. 5.4 will last until 12/2021, which would be a good timeframe for Slackware release. https://www.kernel.org/category/releases.html

It's been more than a year since I did this question.
Now, maybe I can ask again: is anybody here, in the salix biosphere, who knows more or less when the new Slackware will be released?

As a Volkerding's patron on Patreon, I've got this message from the "Benevolent dictator for life":
Very thankful this Thanksgiving
Hi everyone, I just wanted to make sure that in spite of the long radio silence here that you all know how grateful my family and I are for your support. Without your help it would have been a much harder road to Slackware 15.0. Speaking of which, I think we can truly see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm about to merge some updates to the GTK stack and new Xfce right now, and then once we get Plasma 5 merged into the main tree and clear out some unneeded cruft we'll be just about ready for a beta release. Thanks again *so much!* I hope my friends in the US are having a good Thanksgiving, that my Canadian friends had a good one last month, and that everyone everywhere is having a great day today. Cheers!
