Paul Sherman has announced the availability of a new beta release of Absolute Linux 12.1, a light-weight modification of Slackware using the IceWM window manager: "Absolute Linux 12.1 Beta 2. This is another new kernel ( which I compiled with tickless (for laptop lower-power, for battery life extension). Also switched preemption model to low-latency desktop, plus the usual extra includes instead of modules for user-needed stuff like MMC (SD) cards, USB mass storage, NTFS, etc. Other major change is for wireless - switched to wicd. Be sure to enable wicd daemon when installing if you want to use wireless, when you do this you will see the wicd tray icon next to the clock when using IceWM, you can configure wicd from there. Package highlights: GIMP 2.4.3, Firefox, GTK+ 2.12.4, libpng security fix, and about 100 other packages."
