limetech Posted September 2, 2015 Share Posted September 2, 2015 At present we are maintaining two code branches: latest stable and development. The latest stable is always the first entry listed under Stable Releases on the website Download page. The development releases are only publicized in the forum Announcement board. If a relevant Slackware Security Advisory package update becomes available (or other kind of security update), we update both the latest stable and development branches. For the latest stable branch, we then increment the patch level of the release version (the third digit) and publish the new release as soon as practical. Other critical bug fixes may also trigger publishing another latest stable patch release. Of the stable releases listed on the Download page, only the latest stable will be updated. That is, we do not maintain multiple old stable releases at this time. Updates are free and users are encouraged to keep up-to-date. For the development branch, an updated release may or may not be published at the same time as the new stable release, but any package updates or bug fixes which go into latest stable are first integrated into development and tested. Anyone who discovers a security-related issue is encouraged to post here so that we can integrate necessary patches in a timely manner. Quote Link to comment
