One of my favorite small-time Linux distributions is Zenwalk and I'm delighted to see the Slackware-based distribution has been updated for Valentine's Day.

The Slackware-based Zenwalk Linux distribution was updated to version 7.4 on Thursday with many new packages. Among the new packages to find in Zenwalk 7.4 is the current Git code of the Xfce 4.12 desktop, MPlayer has succeeded Totem within the distribution, and there's many new packages. Among the new packages are Mozilla Firefox 27.0, GIMP 2.8.10, LibreOffice 4.1.3, and the Linux 3.10.25 kernel with additional tuning,

More details on Zenwalk 7.4 can be found via the release announcement at Zenwalk.org.
