Saw over at DistroWatch that Slackware Linux 9.0-rc2 has been released

One week after announcing the first release candidate of Slackware Linux 9.0, the second one is now also available. From the Slackware changelog: "Slackware 9.0-rc2 is released for testing." Some of the changes since rc1 include Sendmail security fix, ProFTPD 1.2.8 and BIND 9.2.2 among many others. The glibc library will remain at 2.3.1: "I'm sure many of you were hoping to see an update to glibc-2.3.2 here, but I don't see anything to be gained by switching to 2.3.2 at the last minute. I've been testing it here, and although the ctype patch applies cleanly the result does not compile. Without the patch, most existing static binaries will again be broken under glibc-2.3.2."
