Slackware 13.37

Otra de las clási­cas dis­tribu­ciones de GNU/Linux anun­cia una nueva ver­sión. Le ha tocado turno en esta ocasión a Slack­ware, una dis­tro “anciana” pero en plena forma, tal como demues­tran los suce­sivos lanzamientos.
“Esta­mos seguros de que dis­fru­taréis con las numerosas mejo­ras”, comenta el anun­cio ofi­cial. Incor­pora la ver­sion 13.37 los entornos de escrito­rio Xfce 4.6.2 y KDE 4.5.5; tam­bién encon­traremos el ker­nel, her­ramien­tas como OpenSSL, OpenSSH y Open­VPN; soporte para PCMCIA, Card­Bus, USB, FireWire y ACPI; en otro orden, la v. 13.37 tam­bién incluye pidgin-2.7.11, gimp-2.6.11, gkrellm-2.3.5, xchat-2.8.8, xsane-0.998, etc.

Aquí tienes la lista orig­i­nal de las prin­ci­pales mod­i­fi­ca­ciones que tiene esta versión:

Here are some of the advanced features of Slackware 13.37:

- Runs the version of the Linux kernel from
  Alternate Linux kernels are also provided, as well as
  suggested configurations for using a 2.6.39-rc4 kernel, or the kernel which is supposed to be longterm supported.  These
  kernels will provide reliable performance for your desktop or your
  production server.  By the way, the Speakup driver, used to support
  speech synthesizers providing access to Linux for the visually impaired
  community, has now been merged into all of the provided kernels.

- System binaries are linked with the GNU C Library, version 2.13.
  This version of glibc also has excellent compatibility with
  existing binaries.

- X11 based on the X.Org Foundation's modular X Window System.
  There's been much activity in the X development world, and the
  improvements in terms of performance and hardware support are
  too numerous to mention them all here.

- Installs gcc-4.5.2 as the default C, C++, Objective-C,
  Fortran-77/95, and Ada 95 compiler.

- Support for fully encrypted network connections with OpenSSL,
  OpenSSH, OpenVPN, and GnuPG.

- Apache (httpd) 2.2.17 web server with Dynamic Shared Object
  support, SSL, and PHP 5.3.6.

- PCMCIA, CardBus, USB, FireWire and ACPI support.  This
  makes Slackware a great operating system for your laptop.

- The udev dynamic device management system for Linux 2.6.x.
  This locates and configures most hardware automatically as it
  is added (or removed) from the system, and creates the access
  nodes in /dev.  It also loads the kernel modules required by
  sound cards and other hardware at boot time.

- New development tools, including Perl 5.12.3, Python 2.6.6,
  Ruby 1.9.1-p431, Subversion 1.6.16, git-, mercurial-1.8.2,
  graphical tools like Qt designer and KDevelop, and much more.

- Updated versions of the Slackware package management tools make it
  easy to add, remove, upgrade, and make your own Slackware packages.
  Package tracking makes it easy to upgrade from Slackware 13.1 to
  Slackware 13.37 (see UPGRADE.TXT and CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT).
  The slackpkg tool can also help update from an older version of
  Slackware to a newer one, and keep your Slackware system up to date.
  In addition, the slacktrack utility will help you build and maintain
  your own packages.

- Web browsers galore!  Includes KDE's Konqueror 4.5.5, SeaMonkey 2.1b3
  (this is the replacement for the Mozilla Suite), and the eagerly
  anticipated update to Mozilla's immensely popular Firefox browser,
  Firefox 4.0, as well as the Thunderbird 3.1.9 email and news client
  with advanced junk mail filtering.

- The KDE Software Compilation 4.5.5, a complete desktop environment.
  This includes the KOffice productivity suite, networking tools, GUI
  development with KDevelop, multimedia tools (including the amazing
  Amarok music player and K3B disc burning software), the Konqueror web
  browser and file manager, dozens of games and utilities,
  international language support, and more.

- A collection of GTK+ based applications including pidgin-2.7.11,
   gimp-2.6.11, gkrellm-2.3.5, xchat-2.8.8, xsane-0.998, and pan-0.134.

- A repository of extra software packages compiled and ready to run.
  This includes the Java(TM) 2 Software Development Kit Standard
  Edition, an MPlayer browser plugin, and more (see the /extra directory).

- Many more improved and upgraded packages than we can list here.  For
  a complete list of core packages in Slackware 13.37, see this file:
