Slackware64-current ChangeLog (2021-08-16)

Mon Aug 16 05:28:16 UTC 2021

Hey everyone, long time no see! No, I wasn't out fishing. Sadly, I haven't had
a fishing rod in my hand (or even a fishing license in my wallet) for this
entire season, but there may yet be a chance for that this year. Along with the
usual suspects, I've been trying to clear out the list of things that needed
to get done in order to reach the standard of excellence demanded from a
Slackware release, and I think we've gotten it pretty close. GCC was bumped to
version 11.2.0 (because we just can't send this out 2 versions behind), and
everything was verified to build properly or fixed up so that it did. I don't
see any benefit to another public mass rebuild, so we're not going to do one.
Anyway, without further ado, here is Slackware 15.0 release candidate one.
Consider most things frozen and the focus now to be any remaining blocker bugs.
We'll more than likely take that next Plasma bugfix release, but it's soon
time to get off this treadmill. Enjoy! :-)
