Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2009-07-01)

Wed Jul 1 16:04:35 CDT 2009

Hi folks – the TODO isn't entirely empty here, but it's pretty much down
to minor nits, and so we're going to call this release candidate #1 and
(mostly) freeze further updates unless they happen to fix problems.
Regarding the kernel, 2.6.29.x has been well tested with this userspace
and seems like the best choice to ship for production use. Perhaps we
can put something else (at least source and configs) in /testing, though.
