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."

Yes, it does, but I've mostly found that installing a BASE system was best, along with the compilers, so one could compile from source whatever else was needed.

That was my preferred method of updating because the base install with compilers was really all you needed.
