yes, it is very much being developed and maintained
Alright! Reason I asked is that the install went rather... uneasy so I felt like there were some issues in the installer that might need to be addressed. However, I installed a new hard-disk (I got me one of them SSD's, I can recommend it to everyone who is thinking about spending an extra few bucks to increase performance) and this time around installation went without a hitch. Guess the problem was a gremlin living in the old drive  Grin (it was flaky and needed to be replaced anyhow). Also, the RC1 and RC2 where about a month apart and then nothing for a while, so that got me doubting if it was still getting attention.

I'll bookmark that one, thanks.

Hi guys and gals, long time no see!

I've recently acquired a 'new' used laptop from work, and since it's a nice 64 bit machine I figured I'd give our 64 bit release a try. I intend to use this machine intensively and get the most out of it's processor, so I would prefer using a 64 bit OS.

I downloaded and installed VL64-7.1 RC2 with some issues, and it's running fine now. I have found some things that one might report as a bug, however I can't seem to find an announcement thread pointing to a place where we can file bug reports.

It seems like VL64 is pretty much dead, or am I mistaking here? If VL64 is no longer actively developed that's fine, just wondering if I should still use it or if I should switch to vanilla Slackware64 for this machine.

Have a nice weekend y'all!

Not to mention, that policy has been in place for nearly 2 years.

from adobe:

NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.

Thanks, although I should have clarified what I meant by saying that some of the programs (games and such) won't work without version 14 or higher.

untested is absolutely used. that is the first repository that a package lands in after being built
which allows for testing prior to being labeled as "stable" i.e. a good viable working package.
you can enable the repo via gslapt or /etc/slapt-get/slaptgetrc if you prefer cli. then do an update
and search for the package. its recommended that after doing so you disable the untested repo again
so as not to accidently introduce a broken package to your system. it is called untested for a reason after all.

with that being said, i test packages locally before submitting to the buildbot and then test them from the untested repo as well
i have tested this addon and it does indeed work just fine. it can be moved out of the untested repo.

there are literally a butt ton of addons for geany so if you want/require any just lets us know and we can add them
