While there are still some docs that need updating and probably a few more
tweaks and updates here and there, everything is mostly in place for the next
stable release, Slackware 12.2. The versions of major components like X and
the kernel can be considered frozen. Anything major that we haven't done yet
will probably wait for the release after this next one. As Slackware 12.2 is
only a 0.1 version bump, we're trying to focus on making it better without
causing instability or losing compatibility with Slackware 12.1 wherever
possible. Invasive changes like the new X (that will require changes to
xorg.conf) and merging KDE4 should probably wait for Slackware 13.0.
We will call this batch Slackware 12.2 release candidate one.
