Slackware 10.2

I can't wait for the next Slackware 10.2 release which i don't know for sure when it will be released, but i'm pretty sure that it will be released this year. Some news site has reported that Patrick will release it this year. I have asked him once, but he replies "It will be released when it is ready". For me, "Ready" means stable and yes, it is one of the most stable distro i have ever tried. One problem that exists until now is the udev packages. Packages 0.6x is having trouble with the ALSA issues, so it is downgraded to 0.58. If it isn't stable yet, Patrick will use 0.54 version for the next release of Slackware Linux. You can see it from the Changelog
