This morning, Patrick Volkerding announced that Slackware 14 has reached Beta level. What does it mean? It's another milestone towards the final release of Slackware 14 which is still unknown by now. But, the good news is that we are getting closer to that release.
With this update, Pat also finally included XFCE 4.10 along with other libraries that were requestes by many people in the past. They are required to build many other applications that depends on that libraries. Some people have started to report bugs about XFCE 4.10. I think they still need to be patched in some places.
Distrowatch has picked this news as well. I believe many other media will publicize this in short time. I think i'm quite lucky to notice this good news in the morning, so i can spend some time writing it on my SlackBlogs.
