I'm waiting for the 6.0 release, but when does it come out?

The more I use RC 4, the more I like it.  I think there are a lot of improvements that aren't immediately apparent after installation.  So thanks again everyone.

Also, I posted a link to a review of this release down in the lounge.  It's pretty positive.

Hi all. Long time no see., would this have Gnome support as well? And is this a pay to own like the previous for the Soho version?

Yes, blurymind, you certainly can build packages for VL 6.0 final (or even SOHO or Light) from a clean rc4 system.  Your contributions would be more than welcome.  We're doing all we can to have a very well stocked VL 6.0 repository.  Anything you can add would definitely help.

CentOS 6.5 (will try VL64-7.1 soon)

i built new packages and created slackbuilts (following the new packaging rules):

One thing i love about this release is that its so much fun and easy to create packages for it. I absolutely love the slackbuilt generating script.Its awesome!

I have kept my install clean- I am not going to install gnome or something else at this point. I also have another clean install on a laptop. =P Everything is ready to make packages.
