I submitted SOHO to tweakers. It usually takes some time to be progressed and I don't know if we'll get approved.

There is a page on XFCE's official web site concerning XFCE based distros. I think someone (developers) should contact XFCE staff to inform them that VL's Standard edition is XFCE-based.

Here is the page - http://www.xfce.org/download/distros.

I was surprised the release announcement didn't show up on Distrowatch.

I'll write to the developers of culmus-fonts and make them aware of our binaries.  It might be helpful if the package for VL 5.9 made it out of testing into Extra, though.  I use those fonts all the time and there is nothing wrong with the package.

Maybe some people can update the VL wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_Linux

Update the information, new screenshots, clean it up, etc...

More customization (looks better, is more finely tuned). Faster, has more optimization. Has control tools like VasmCC and vlwifi to make administrating the system and setting up wireless a snap. Slackware is everything plain and vanilla, Vector adds spice and life into the stability that Slackware is known for. Vector inherits Slackware's good things and makes them better, faster, and more user-friendly. Does that help any?
Thanks for info.
Could you, please, give more info?
Will post that, when I'll return from trip(I am leaving for about a month)
Thanks once more...

Not sure this counts, but FWIW, I talked to the LXDE Devs, and they have listed VL in their wiki as a distro featuring LXDE

Unfortunately they refer to Vectorlinux LITE instead of Vector Linux Light  :(  Anyone want to politely correct them?

It seems like tweakers has not approved my submission. Sad to see an update like opensuse has made it to the software update list.
