      Release Notes: This release was mainly intended for addressing a problem with FILE_LIST parsing, but it also comes with some additions like a new package icon for packages which have the same version/architecture but different build number. There's also a ready-to-go list of Slackware mirrors and a keep-connection-alive function, both available in preferences.
