Slax, which was formerly based on Slackware, is a Debian-based distribution and live CD. When the new Debian-based Slax was launched some users pointed out missing wireless support and a lack of non-free items. These missing components are being addressed in the next version of the Slax distribution. "I noticed that Debian has updated to 9.3.0 so it's time to update Slax too. I plan to release updates with each minor Debian release, if there are any bug fixes or changes (in Slax) at that moment. Currently I've implemented these changes: added wireless tools; added firmware (free and non-free); added contrib and non-free repositories; fixed apt-get alias parameters handling." More details and the project's to-do list can be found in the project's blog post.
