New in version 01.2010 (January 6th, 2010)
- With the beginning of this new year it's time for a new release.
- Many people asked me whether there is a 64-Bit version, too?
- Now i can say: Yes, it is!
- With the release of Toorox 01.2010 you can get a 64-Bit version, too.
- It contains the 2.6.32-gentoo kernel and the KDE was updated to the recent version 4.3.4.
- The Toorox Installer is now able to exclude your /home/... folder to another partition and you can install the bootloader into a single partition or floppy disk.
- There's a new entry in the Systemconfig: Mobile Broadband. It starts the application umtsmon. There you can configure your mobile UMTS connection and bring it up.
- All packages for a pptp-vpn connection were included and you can configure it via Networkmanager and the nm-applet.
- KFTPgrabber was exchanged with gftp and there's a new audio-mixer installed: mixxx. You will find it in the ?-Starter - "Party-DJ".
New in version 06.2009 (June 28th, 2009)
- As always - the KDE was updated to the latest version
- 4.2.4. The recent CVS-snapshot of the plasmoid lancelot_part was included, because QT
- was updated to 4.5.1 and the old version of the plasmoid has some trouble with it (empty box).
- The USB-Stick creator script was optimised. Now there are 3 options for you:
- Static, Personal and Encrypted. For the last 2 options your home folder will be stored
- and with the third option even password-encrypted when you shutdown the system.
- Now 2 partitions will be created - ext2 for Toorox and fat32 for regular data storage on
- your pendrive.
- Some users had problems (Kernel Panic) after an installation and booting from an external
- USB-HDD. This came up, because the kernel needs some seconds for its initialisation.
- This was fixed in the installer.
