What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· This new version of Bluewhite64 brings many new and interesting features, improvements and packages updates. I like to share with you just a few and the important ones, but if you are interested to see all of them you have to download and install Bluewhite64 13.0 .
· The first major change is a new and improved package format, we have switched to the LZMA compression algorithm to reduce the packages size and improve the decompression speed. In this way, the new packages extension changed from .tgz to .txz. Also, the package tools has been improved to work with the new packages and support other extensions like .tbz and .tlz.
· Continuing our journey in the features and improvements land, we have updated the modularized X.org to version 1.6.3 along with the drivers, libraries and utilities to create for you a stable and relaxant X.org. Since I'm writing about the X.org feature, cannot omit that there is no need to have a xorg.conf file because all the setting are handled by HAL.
· Other important changes and feature include a new generic Linux Kernel 126.96.36.199 with more modules enabled (you have to create a initrd to use the generic kernel) for daily use; the new KDE 4.3.1 and Xfce 4.6.1 Window Managers; the Mozilla Foundation products (Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey latest versions); the Koffice 2.0.2 office suite for KDE4; Mplayer the popular multimedia player for Linux; improved and updated development tools, libraries, console, X applications and many more that makes Bluewhite64 Linux 13.0 better then ever.
