General Mage

A question about inventory slots for mages I've had a cleric since before big bang that I've barely leveled since. I was thinking about playing on this class again sometime after red but I didn't know whether or not the mages gained more slots since back then. I have 24 slots in use and setup and 28 slots in equip and etc. My question for you is do mages have more base slots than this now, or not? As a followup question, does anyone know if they will have more base slots after RED? I just want to know whether I should replace my character with a new one for the inventory slots or keep what I have now for its level.
