The Slint installers are now translated to Turkish and Portuguese (Portugal), thanks to Kemal ├ľkmen and Hugo Carvalho.
New localized man pages are included in package pkgtools: it, pt_PT
New localized man pages are included in package slackpkg: it, pt_PT
New translations of the script slint.sh: id, it, pt_PT
To allow introduction of pt_PT, pt is renamed pt_BR as needed in relevant files and directories.
Updated localized man pages are available: installpkg (tr), makepkg (de)
Following files are no more localized, as user won’t see or can’t do anything about messages displayed during installation : /etc/rc.dropbear /etc/rc.udev /etc/rc.usb /sbin/probe
Changes in slint/data/locales/SeTlocales: typos corrected, settings added for Bulgarian, Chinese, Portuguese (Portugal), selection of a true type font per locale added to prepare introduction of translations in ideographic languages.
/etc/rc.S have been fixed to display the good Slackware version in welcome message of all installers (thanks to Miguel De Anda for the bug report).
Installers' config files have been fixed to properly set the SLACK_KERNEL parameter in all command lines.
More translations of the new web pages.


Minor changes to translations, mostly formatting enhancement of text displayed before running setup.
Usage of syslinux-nomtools (renamed syslinux) in version 14.1 to make USB boot sticks during configuration, as mtools-4 bundled with syslinux 4.0.6 shipped in Slackware 14.1 installers fails by lack of /usr/lib{,64}/gconv/IBM850.so needed for Unicode conversion to the codepage (850 is the default).
man pages for packages pkgtools and slackpkg in Portuguese (pt_PT) reviewed.
slint.sh translated to Chinese (zh-CN).
