Slackware 11.0 Release Candidate 1 Is Here

Well, slackware-current is now officially Slackware 11.0 Release Candidate 1 (RC1). Patrick made an update to the -current ChangeLog earlier today. This means it’s time for me to burn a copy and install it on my development machine. New slackware releases are always very exciting. Congrats on coming upon another fine Slackware release Patrick! It’s gonna be great.
