Hello everyone,

Slackpack’s new version (1.1.5 or 2, depends on the load of the upgrades hehe :P) is coming, the think is that i want to update the UI but im out of ideas 🙂

so if there’s anyone out there who’s using slackpack (not to optimistic arent I? hehe) and have a cool idea regarding Slackpack’s user interface please contact me, if i like the idea, i will implement it in the next version of Slackpack.

also if you have graphic skills and some free time, you can help with the icons of slackpack.

I want the new version of Slackpack to be something different and cool, so if you want to help to achieve that please contact me @:


and you’ll earn your name to the “Thanks To” page 🙂

If you have any feature request please add them here:

Thank you.

I’ve just finish porting the “Create Package” future to qt4,

so far I’ve ported the install/remove and now create package future to qt4 and they are actually working pretty good although a big part of qt3 code can work properly using the Qt3Support library of Qt4 😉 the menu bar actions are working also xD

Ialso thinking of upgrading the UI and adding some new cool futures, if you have any good ideas please contact me or add them here:

As of 28-08-2009 the development of the new version of Slackpack for Slackware 13.0 has started 🙂

the next version will include major upgrades coz the new Slackware 13.0 will come with KDE 4.2.4 and a new(!) .txz package format, this means that ill have to upgrade the hole Slackpack UI from qt3 to qt4 and make Slackpack compatible with .txz, i didnt have the change to test the Slackware 13.0 yet but im downloading the .iso now so it wont last long before i start coding again! 🙂

more information about the new Slackware 13.0 release at http://www.slackware.com

aprox 1year after the first official release of Slackpack, today we’ve reached 700 downloads 🙂
I’m very glad to see that slackware linux users are using my program as their package manager 🙂

looking forward to see 1000download count for Slackpack.

Thank You.
