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!
