15.0 Beta3 64-bit released
Another kernel uopdate and kept up with Slack-Current, as well as a couple serious fixes in the mime setup and permissions/polkit use. After quite a bit of testing this would be considered a release candidate. I will switch to spending some time in the forum to find issues from users...
Friday, 01/19/2018
Two kernel updates since first beta, plus all updates from Slackware up to the 18th. Some library updates, a few fixes, some file handling tweaks in ROX and ICEWM as well as "restricted" updates to ffmpeg, mplayer and openshot.
Monday, 01/11/2018
Updated all to Slackware-current (64), releasing as 15.0 Beta 1

Dropped support for x86

Releasing as beta, giving the opportunity to get extra testing and feedback prior to final. Also to help mitigate the current meltdown and spectre security problems.

Other changes : PaleMoon is the default browser, but Firefox also installed. (If PaleMoons default page search gives you problems, just go the the search page you want, then drag and drop the page icon onto the homepage button.)

Python 3 (and wxpython/GTK 3) and QT5 are included as well as python2.7 and QT4. Includes Kodi Home Theater 17.6. Most everything recompiled.

Remember to run the MultiMedia installer if you are interested in additional codecs. Start Menu > System Tools > Multimedia Installation
