Published on 2008-05-02 at 11:45:11 by  Georgi Sotirov

Today Patrick Volkerding announced the availability of Slackware 12.1. The latest release brings the following improvements and new features:

  • only 2.6 kernels are supported
  • better support for RAID, LVM and cryptsetup
  • network capable installer (FTP and HTTP in addition to NFS)
  • Xfce 4.4.2
  • KDE 3.5.9
  • and many more software updates

I have not experienced problems using any of the 12.0 packages on the site with Slackware 12.1, but please report problems, so I could rebuild. Very soon, 12.1 packages will pop up on the site.

Citing Patrick - Have fun!
