A quick update on the ISO progress – the Classical ISOs are looking good, although there was a bug with the Mate Menu which has been fixed, but another rebuild will be needed to get the fix onto the ISOs. The latest build of the Live ISOs fixed bugs with the installer crashing on systems with low memory and added boot entries to enable nonfree drivers.
Updates wise, there has been good activity. Here is a small selection:
- kernel 4.9.25
- flatpak 0.9.3
- nautilus 3.24.1
- phoronix-test-suite 7.0.1
- mesa 17.0.4
- thunderbird 52.0.1
- virtualbox 5.1.20
And many many more!
