Last weekend at FOSDEM, Lennart Poettering was one of the keynote speakers where he presented on systemd's user-space plans for the years.
Lennart's presentation was entitled systemd and Where We Want to Take the Basic Linux Userspace in 2016. I held off on covering it since the PDF slides weren't available, but alas, they still aren't out yet short of watching the video (the audio quality isn't that good).

Slackware Live Edition – on its way to 1.0?
Last week the second Beta of the upcoming Slackware 14.2 was released. My goal was to have a new Beta of my liveslak ready by that time, so that I could provide new ISO images to test the Slackware Beta2 on a live medium.

Therefore the new release is not labeled “0.5.0” but “0.5.1”
