Firefox 3 in Slackware

It's less than 24 hours from the download day and now Slackware-Current already has Firefox 3 package in the tree, which is good thing. Unlike the previous one, usually Slackware-Current started by upgrading the toolchain which will be used as the basis for the next Slackware-Current, but as far as i see now, Pat tried to keep the -Current updated even though it's not as much as usual. Probably the real -Current development will start in one or two months.

When that time comes, i believe he will start working on KDE 4.1 packages which is planned to be released on July. I'd love to see next Slackware shipped with KDE 4, GCC 4.3, and any other toolchain that is working at the best ever had.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Wed Jun 18 14:42:48 CDT 2008
xap/mozilla-firefox-3.0-i686-1.tgz: Upgraded to firefox-3.0.
Congratulations to the Firefox people for the nice improvements, as well as such an impressive number of first-day downloads. :-) We didn't put this out yesterday, figuring it was better to let people download from them...
