Slackware 15.0 RC1

For all of us that are still waiting for the next major Slackware release the waiting continues as this morning Slackware 15.0 Release Candidate 1 was announced on the ChangeLog. In the new release GCC was bumped to 11.2.0, but GLibC would remain at 2.33, because of a "risky change of moving all functions into the main library" and an "inconvenient change of renaming the library files. From now on "most things" should be considered "frozen" and only some "remaining blocker bugs" would be focused on.

So, keep waiting for Slackware 15.0 "to reach the standard of excellence demanded from a Slackware release" ;-)
