SolusOS Changelog

New in version 2 Alpha 9

September 10th, 2013
  • Alpha 9 comes with the 3.11 kernel using LZ4 compression, Xfce 4.10, Thunar 1.6.3, Firefox 24.0b9, glibc 2.17, GLib 2.37.3, and many other goodies. We’ve completely changed the artwork to be more in tune with the SolusOS look. 155 commits have been made to the source repository since the release of Alpha 8. Of those commits, 25 were new packages. The root account has now also been disabled by default, as the installer adds a sudo user to the system.
