Today’s update to the Slackware-current ChangeLog.txt comes with a large piece of communication by Pat Volkerding. A new kernel, a start of UEFI boot support in the Slackware installer, and new glibc packages are the most important changes mentioned in the post. If Pat had a blog this would definitely be a proper “blog post” considering its size. A recommended read for followers of the Slackware development effort.
Of course that glibc update warrants a companion update of the multilib packages which I maintain on the side. Check out these download locations:
