Tomáš Matějíček has announced the release of SLAX 5.1.8, the last version of the SLAX 5 series: "I'm happy to announce the immediate availability of SLAX 5.1.8. This release includes a SLAX-boot CD (only a 5MB ISO image) designed to boot SLAX from USB keys in case your BIOS doesn't support it. Users can just plug in the USB key with SLAX data to boot from this CD and it can also be used to boot SLAX directly from an ISO file. Changes made in 5.1.8: added KDE 3.5.4, recompiled with some Slackware 11 fixes; better handling of booting from USB devices; added NTFS-3g to fully support writing to NTFS partitions; added slaxsave.zip to SLAX CD, containing pre-built loop file systems." See the SLAX changelog for a more detailed list of all recent changes.
