Slackware 13.37slackware-13.37
Mon Apr 25 13:37:00 UTC 2011 Slackware 13.37 x86_64 stable is released! Thanks to everyone who pitched in on this release: the Slackware team, the folks producing upstream code, and linuxquestions.org for providing a great forum for collaboration and testing. The ISOs are off to be replicated, a 6 CD-ROM 32-bit set and a dual-sided 32-bit/64-bit x86/x86_64 DVD. Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy from store.slackware.com. We're taking pre-orders now, and offer a discount if you sign up for a subscription. As always, thanks to the Slackware community for testing, suggestions, and feedback. :-) Have fun!

+<p>When you save the file for the first time in this session, Emacs will normally save
+the old version of your file to a backup file, which has the same name appended with a
+tilde: so if you're editing a file &#8220;<tt class="FILENAME">cars.txt</tt>&#8221;,
+Emacs will create a backup &#8220;<tt class="FILENAME">cars.txt~</tt>&#8221;.</p>
+
+<p>This backup file is a copy of the file that you opened. While you are working, Emacs
+will also regularly create an auto-save copy of the work you are doing, to a file named
+with hash signs: <tt class="FILENAME">#cars.txt#</tt>. This backup is deleted when you
+save the file with C-x C-s.</p>

+<td>
+<pre class="SCREEN">
+<kbd class="USERINPUT">C-x k</kbd>

+</table>
+
+<p>Emacs will then ask you which buffer you want to kill, with the current buffer as
+default, which you can select by hitting <b class="KEYCAP">ENTER</b>. If you haven't
+saved your file yet, Emacs will ask you if you really want to kill the buffer.</p>
