        * This release of sbopkg is Slackware 14.0-ready. (Congrats to
          all involved in the Slackware release.)

          or installing, in addition to -b (download, build) and -i

          with the -D flag. Sorry for any inconvenience.
        * The 'Build' option in a package's info menu has been renamed
          to 'Process', along with many other minor informational
          changes throughout the UI.
        * The Slamd64 repo file has been removed as that project is
