Last Slax version was released many years ago. I didn't have resources to work on Slax any longer. But just yesterday, I've signed a contract with P&P Software GmbH and wisol technologie GmbH. Thanks to these two companies, I'm funded now to work on Slax fulltime (or, at least, 90% time, since I still keep my ongoing business, which needs some minimal maintenance).
The contract states, among others, the following: Slax will be updated to the latest versions of all sofrware components, and final release of Slax 7 will be released within 4 months.
Thus, it should be ready before christmas! :)
I will post my progress on this blog.
