Slackware 11.0 RC3

If Microsoft has just released IE 7.0 RC1, then Slackware also just released Slackware 11.0 RC3. It was one of the biggest updates i ever had besides previous updates due to upgraded libpng library which caused all application to be recompiled. This time, Pat has decided to more 2.6.17.11 from /testing to /extra, which means, it will be the default kernel series supported in the next Slackware release along with 2.4.33.2 (after being patched by Pat to read the new kernel naming in 2.4.x series). The complete changelog can be seen in Slackware's official website.

Lots and lots of application has been upgraded to the most stable and (hopefully) updated version for now, but wait... It's not the last RC probably as there will still a chance for another RC. Just wait and see...
