After the calculation mistake of 900K was found, in build 2, it took some time to repair. But now it is all ready and set to go. All Qt-wallet binaries have been build. Thanks to the support from the community in a true Open Source manner.
The BumbaCoin dev / PineApples made a MacX and WinX build for the Qt wallet. And the GNU-Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 X64) version has been done too. So the young Sloth Sluke has got the Fork going!
The creator of the orginal Slothcoin is supporting his creation, the old and wise Sloda, while the community has given the project a new spirit. May the Sloth be with you!

Oh, and here some cool Sloth, swimming, just for your entertainment:
Still some way off from block 300K there were some little bugs found in Slothcoin version 1.3.1. So another build is coming up. Number 3 addresses some calculation error of 900K COIN, which would make Slothcoin still go over the maximum int64 value. Hopefully it is done right this time.
Compiling in GNU Linux is a peace of cake. WinX, on the other hand is a real pain in the… But it seems that the MakeFile is a bit outdated for that matter too. The idea was though to have a team, or more than 1 contributer for Slothcoin 1.3.1. Where there would be one for building WinX and one for building MacX. While Slick dot CF takes care of the GNU Linux build.
Considering that users of GNU Linux versions other than Debian/Ubuntu and their siblings would be able to build it themselves. Hopefully some people will step in to make the WinX and / or MacX build happen. The bounty still stands.

There were some minor hickups, like losing the sourcecode changes, but now it is ready to go. The changed reward system kicks in at block 300K and the Qt-wallet and deamon have been tested on Ubuntu GNU-Linux. Starting fast, getting the blocks in at full spead and even mining very well.
The QR-code has been fixed, less warnings during build and some other minor changes have been done. The change from block 300K has been made conditional. It needs consensus of the network though. That means that all current 1.3.0 versions need to update to 1.3.1 to get it really going from block 300K.
Remember to ALWAYS backup your current Wallet before changing to version 1.3.1 [build 3]. Better even do two Backups, on different media, like a USB stick or SD-card.
