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 2.6.37.6 Linux kernel (hence our new $SLACKWARE_VERSION.$KERNEL_VERSION naming system used for 
this release ;-), and also ships with 2.6.38.4 kernels for those who want to run the latest (and also 
includes configuration files for 2.6.35.12 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:

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
