Slackware, Slax Patrick J. Volkerding announced the first release candidate of Slackware 12 in the current changelog. This will be the first Slackware release with a kernel from the 2.6 tree (2.6.21.5) as default. "It's that time again, and here we have Slackware 12.0 release candidate 1! If we're lucky, we got it all right the first time. Big thanks to the crew."

There are lots of new things in Slackware -current. Pat has added HAL, KDE is built with HAL support, OpenVPN, gamin, bluez, apache2, and the list goes on and on. You can read about how to update to -current, as well as list of all the new packages, in the "Changes and Hints" text file on the mirrors. Here's a link to one:
