Slackware 11 release - soon!

Well, it looks like Slackware 11 will be releasing very soon. I'm rather anxious, but not because of the normal reasons - I'm running -current, so a new stable release means we can get back to some new and exciting changes in -current instead of just stability upgrades.

One thing that I'm going to be working on is an experimental version of sysvinit 2.86 while PiterPunk is working on udev >097. There were quite a few changes to the rules syntax in 098, and while the old stuff will still work right now (while logging warnings), it's best to go ahead and get them implemented now so people can start getting used to them. I don't mean to scare anyone - the changes are good, and they're not so major that they require massive rewrites of anything - a simple sed substitution will probably do the trick (here's hoping, anyway).

On another note, the SlackBuilds.org project is coming along well; we've added quite a few new scripts since going live, and we have several more in the queue to be added soon. Thanks to everyone for your support!
