Our second release candidate for our Xfce edition version 14.0 is now available for testing. Very little has changed since RC1 and hopefully this time all bugs are fixed.
With respect to the installation procedure, the autoinstall bug that RC1 had, has now been fixed. Also, The default filesystem is now XFS, but as always, users doing a manual install can choose between Btrfs, ext2/3/4, ReiserFS, JFS and XFS.
A last minute addition to the default full installation is Sakis3g, along with usb_modeswitch. Sakis3g is a script that makes connecting to the internet with mobile broadband as easy as possible. Important upgrades in the default installation since RC1, are the upgrade of libreoffice to the latest 3.6.3 version and of OpenJRE to version 7u9.
Out mirror of the slackbuilds.org repository now includes limited dependency support. It uses only the data in each SlackBuild's .info file and these are written with the assumption of a full Slackware installation, so some dependencies may be missing in some cases. Software that is already present in either the Salix binary repositories, or the Salix SLKBUILD repository, will not be visible through our slackbuilds.org mirror to avoid confusion with same packages being available in both gslapt/slapt-get and sourcery/slapt-src (although the respective scripts are there for anyone that wants to download them manually).
Please help with testing this release candidate so we can be sure there are no remaining bugs for the final release. You can download either through Sourceforge or using a torrent client.i686, 32-bit
