The VectorLinux development team is proud to announce the release of VectorLinux 5.9 final GOLD edition. This is the fruit that has resulted from several months of coding, debugging and testing by the core development team and the Vector community.

Additional features include: X.org 7.3, Linux kernel 2.6.22.14, fully customized Xfce 4.4.2, Fluxbox, Jwm, SeaMonkey Internet Suite 1.1.7, Firefox 2.0.0.11 and Opera 9.5.0 beta1 (so you'll be sure to have your favorite browser!). Abiword and Gnumeric for your office tasks. We include our own suite of gui configuration and support tools such as Vasm, Vwifi and Gslapt. There is a full set of the latest wireless drivers and configuration tools, support for read and write to ntfs via fuse and ntfs-3g. We have games lots of games. Printers, scanners and cameras are supported as well.

Popular programs like amarok, openoffice, kde-3.5.8 and many others are available in our repository which currently boasts well over a thousand of the most popular linux applications and support software. Other news with this release is VLpackager, an easy way to package source code into usable binary packages and at long last a GUI control center dubbed VasmCC. We also have a modified version of cruxports for those wishing to easily build software that may not have made it to the repository yet.
