Linux Release Details:
Slackware Linux 11.0 RC3 is available now
Slackware 11.0 release candidate 3. I think most of the irresistible upgrades are in here now, and the bug reports have been mostly handled. There may still be a few changes, and possibly another release candidate, but this is pretty close to final with the exception of updating documentation and building ZipSlack. Thanks very much to everyone who is helping to test these release candidates -- I think this is going to be a very up to date and stable release.
About Slackware Linux 11.0 RC3

The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table. Originally developed by Linus Torvalds in 1991, the UNIX-like Linux operating system now benefits from the contributions of millions of users and developers around the world. Slackware Linux provides new and experienced users alike with a fully-featured system, equipped to serve in any capacity from desktop workstation to machine-room server. Web, ftp, and email servers are ready to go out of the box, as are a wide selection of popular desktop environments. A full range of development tools, editors, and current libraries is included for users who wish to develop or compile additional software.

Some Now Changes

1. patches/packages/glibc-2.3.5-i486-6_slack10.2.tgz: Patched an issue with kernel version parsing in ld-2.3.5.so that was leading glibc to treat 2.4 kernels with 4 version parts (such as 2.4.33.1) as if they supported NPTL, leading to a crash at boot.

2. Added ru_RU.CP1251 locale support.

3. Updated timezone information from tzdata2006j.

4. Updated timezone utilities from tzcode2006j.

5. patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.3.5-noarch-6_slack10.2.tgz: Rebuilt.

6. Added ru_RU.CP1251 locale support.
