You are fine, no need to reinstall. 13.1.2 is an upgraded version of 13.1.1. If you kept your system up to date, you are in fact using 13.1.2. except for the new packages that have been included in the last iso (mainly slapt-src, zim & meld) . If you wish to include those new packages to your system, you can simply use slapt-get or gslapt & you are done.Dennola4 wrote:1) Should I "upgrade" my system to 13.1.2 or am I ok continuing with 13.1.1? What I mean is, am I suddenly using an inferior version of Salix? Also, will 13.1.1 continue receiving software updates, or are the updates only for the current version of Salix?
There are two main kinds of Salix releases:3) How often does Salix plan to offer new versions?
1- Salix regular release, which follows Slackware main release, so far we had: 13.0 & 13.1
2- Salix bugfix/security release, which are edited as the need arise & are noticeable by the appended suffix of a third number, so far we had: 13.0.1, 13.0.2, 13.1.1 & 13.1.2.
If upgrades have been performed on a regular basis, there is no need for installing a bugfix/security release, which are provided as a convenience for brand new installations.
