Brian Manderville has announced a couple of hours ago, April 28, that the 4th release of his Descent|OS Linux operating system is now available for download.
Unfortunately, the developer is attending the Linux Fest NorthWest and there’s no clear information about what’s new in Descent|OS 4.0. From a previous blog post, we know that it is now based on Debian Sid.
Descent|OS 4.0 should also include Steam for Linux, updated Compiz packages, a new Software Center inspired by Linux Deepin’s one, and the Chromium web browser.
“Descent|OS is going through a new phase in development, where it will run under an 8-month release cycle, with one service release halfway through the cycle.”
“This will allow for a more stable system, and bug fixes to be deployed quicker while development for Descent|OS 5 goes on.” said Brian Manderville in the blog announcement.
Descent|OS 4.0 is distributed as a Live DVD ISO image, supporting only the 64-bit architecture, at the moment. Support for 32-bit arch will be available in a day or two.
