As I guess everyone noticed, there were >400 things that didn't even
get checked for 13.0 goodness because we simply didn't have time.
We know that some of those were mentioned on this mailing list, 
and while we would have preferred to get those included, it just
couldn't happen, unfortunately.  Once the submit page opens back up,
please consider submitting those to us (if we haven't already done
them and followed up with you).

On a related note, here's a sincere "thanks" from me personally to
the rest of the SlackBuilds.org team, espcially to Erik Hanson for
handling the server maintenance and to Heinz Wiesinger for taking
care of the website changes required.  I'm proud to be a part of
this talented and wonderful group!
