At the moment the last stable version is 14.2.2 which is based on 64-bit Slackware, where update Xorg version, in addition to taking care of safety and functional repairs such as pulse audio adjustments, network manager, battery management.

The installer was also updated to fix the error of not finding drives for automatic installation.

All Slackware updates to the current program included and various recompiled programs to keep up with dependency changes.

Meanwhile the creator of this distribution has released a new beta version to the public which is 15.0, where you update the Linux kernel, as well as the inclusion of the solution de current fusion and safety issues of scpecter, of which it handles 2 out of 3 vulnerabilities.


At the moment it is the only thing that has been received in this release, so if you want to contribute to the detection of bugs or in their development you can download the ISO of the system from this link.
