Slackware 13.37 is released!
It's true! Slackware 13.37 has been released. Nearly a year in the making, you will appreciate the
performance and stability that can only come with careful and rigorous testing. Slackware 13.37 uses
the 22.214.171.124 Linux kernel (hence our new $SLACKWARE_VERSION.$KERNEL_VERSION naming system used for
this release ;-), and also ships with 126.96.36.199 kernels for those who want to run the latest (and also
includes configuration files for 188.8.131.52 and 2.6.39-rc4). The long-awaited Firefox 4.0 web browser
is included, the X Window System has been upgraded (and includes the open source nouveau driver for
nVidia cards). The venerable Slackware installer has been improved as well, with support for
installing to btrfs (for those who would like to try a new copy on write filesystem), a
one-package-per-line display mode option, and alienBOB's big surprise: an easy to set up PXE install
server that runs right off the DVD!
More details may by found in the official announcement and in the release notes:
For a complete list of included packages, see the package list:
Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of the Slackware 13.37 release
from the Slackware Store:
The discs are off to replication, but we're accepting pre-orders for the official 6 CD set and the
DVD. The CD set is the 32-bit x86 release, while the DVD is a dual-sided disc with the 32-bit x86
release on one side and the 64-bit x86_64 release on the other. And, we still have T-shirts (coming
soon, a limited edition 13.37 release commemorative black T-shirt with the classic Slackware logo on
the front, and a "leet" LILO bootscreen on the back) and other Slackware stuff there, so have a look
around. Thanks to our subscribers and supporters for keeping Slackware going all these years.
Thanks are again due to the Slackware crew, the developers of slackbuilds.org, the community on
linuxquestions.org, Slackware IRC channels, and everyone else who helped out with this release.
Have fun, and enjoy the new stable release!
Pat and the Slackware crew
