DidoEx writes "Slackware is bound to be about ready, Patrick's on his fifth release candidate for Pete's sake. Fortunately, his steganographical message in the latest changelog http://www.slackware.com/changelog/current.php?cpu=i386 said, "Really, this time it is not a drill! Everything is in place and ready to release at this point."
He continued by saying if no showstoppers are found we can expect the official release "soon." It's my good fortune to subscribe to Willy Sudiarto Raharjo's Slackblogs because he parses those boring changelogs into a human readable format. He blogged earlier what was new this release:
* Linux Kernel 3.2.29
* GLIBC upgraded to tzdata 2012f
* Patch rebuilt to add upstream patch
* Git, Slacktrack, Samba, SVN, and VSFTPD upgraded to the latest bugfix releases
* More kernel configs in testing/ directory, including 3.4.11, 3.5.4, and 3.6-RC4"
