Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2009-08-06)

Thu Aug 6 00:48:30 CDT 2009

Hi folks! We're going to call this set of updates RC2. There are still
README files to be handled (that's the nature of documentation, I guess), as
well as some other things remaining on the TODO list, but X seems pretty
stable now, and it seems like a release soon would be in order so that we
can march right back into development territory with -current again soon. :-)
Enjoy, and let us know about any problems you run into!
