Slackware64-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-06-10)

Mon Jun 10 21:51:54 UTC 2013

After careful consideration and a lot of testing as the 3.9.x kernel series
has progressed, we have decided to move to the latest kernel. It should be
a nice improvement over 3.8.13, which as you all know has reached EOL (at
kernel.org anyway… I do know about Ubuntu's git maintained version).
After the last experience with upgrading 14.0 to a newer LTS kernel, I can't
say that I have too much faith in the idea that LTS kernels can be upgraded
without causing any regressions. If the kernel we're using in -current
happens to be delared an LTS kernel, sure, that's a nice plus, but I don't
think it's worth rolling all the way back to 3.4.x just to have an LTS kernel.
Anyway, test it out and report any issues!
