Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

I'm pretty sure both 10.0 and 10.1 have both linuxthreads and NPTL depending on if you use a 2.6 kernel or a 2.4 patched kernel it uses NPTL and if you use a vanilla 2.4 kernel it wil use linuxthreads

I'm pretty sure you're wrong. From the changelog:

Fri May 13 12:51:03 PDT 2005
Here's the (I'm sure) long awaited upgrade to Slackware's glibc to include support for NPTL (the Native POSIX Thread Library). NPTL works with newer kernels (meaning 2.6.x, or a 2.4 kernel that is patched to support NPTL, but not an unmodified "vanilla" 2.4 kernel such as Slackware uses) to provide improved performance for threads.
