Fusion Linux Changelog

New in version 14.1

July 3rd, 2011
  • This release has been in the making for few months, and it is mostly an update to out initial release. Biggest new feature is LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice and two biggest bugs squashed. One bug prevented Firefox 4.0 from starting while using it as LiveUSB or LiveDVD and other bug was a dependency issue that prevented updates from being downloaded. We hoped with this release to make all desktop components more stable and put an overall desktop polish.

New in version 13.1 (September 6th, 2010)

  • Community Fedora Remix is dead, long live Fusion Linux!
  • Almost from the start it was obvious that Community Fedora Remix was not suitable name for this project. Old name was ment to be only temporary but it stayed longer than anticipated.
  • New name for this project is Fusion Linux.
  • Fusion is defined as union, coalition of more entities into one body, that definition explains really nicely what this Fedora Remix is about because it is union between Fedora, RPM Fusion repository and few extra bits. Because RPM Fusion repository is enabled by default this name fits great. Great online quote I found: “combining of images from the two eyes to form a single visual percept” also is great definition this Fedora Remix, two images merged into single visual percept.
  • Look forward for new Fusion Linux release that is going to be released soon.
  • Also I would like to thank you all for your support, without your support this project wouldn’t have survived after second release.
