Just seen today that Slackware 12.0 is out and has a 2.6 kernel (and therefore better wireless support for laptops......)
That's right, the first 2.6(.21.5) based Slackware release is ready for download! We think you'll enjoy the latest kernel, KDE 3.5.7, XFce 4.4.1, HAL automounting for desktop users, an updated toolchain, and many other enhancements. The official announcement has more details. Also, consider supporting the project at http://store.slackware.com. Thanks to everyone who contributed improvements and fixes this time -- a lot of help made this a relatively smooth release.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Pat and the Slackware team
