Ok, I realise that this is old news to some people, especially the slackers here at AO but I still think that this warrants a mention:



Slackware 8.1 is released!

That's right, Slackware 8.1 has been released and is available for download right now from:

An installation ISO image can be found here:


And, of course, we will be happy to accept your pre-orders for the Slackware 8.1 official 4 CD-ROM set here:


Highlights of this release include KDE 3.0.1, GNOME 1.4.1 (with new additions like Evolution), the long-awaited Mozilla 1.0 browser, support for many new filesystems like ext3, ReiserFS, JFS, and XFS, and support for several new SCSI and ATA RAID controllers.

Thanks to everyone who helped made this release possible. Enjoy! :-)
