Elive 2.0 is Definitely a Jewel

Filed under
Linux

Elive has everything eye-candy and speed. Dubbed Topaz, Elive 2.0 is still powered by the Debian mammoth and the lightweight Enlightenment E17 desktop environment. The developers state that the it is so light that it uses only half of the resources on a system with less than 128 MB of system RAM

Heres Some Major Highlights:

· Linux kernel 2.6.30.9;
· Enlightenment E17 window manager;
· Better autolaunchers;
· Added lots of user Configurators;
· Support for 3G phones;
· Compiz powered desktop effects;
· Amazing, new features to the Elive Installer
· Nurse mode, a repair and recovery tool;
· Support for bluetooth;
· Ability to create USB bootable sticks with Elive;
· OSS compatibility support;
· Improved Autologin;
· Broadcom 43xx drivers;
· Added audio configurator utility;
· Added special kernels with support for systems with more than 4 GB of RAM;
· User friendly;
· Added new translations;
· ...and many more breathtaking features!

Elive is a Linux distribution based on Debian, which sports a large number of applications, ranging from multimedia, office and Internet-related applications, to games and science. With Elive, you can watch movies, listen to your favorite songs, surf the Internet or chat with friends.

I would say that almost everything about this version of Elive is great. It definitely beats its competitor OpenGEU.

Software: LabPlot 2.5, GNU Parallel 20180622 ('Kim Trump'), Ick ALPHA-6

  • LabPlot 2.5 released
    It took much more time to finalize the release than we planned in the beginning after the 2.4 release was done. But we hope the number of features we implemented for 2.5 and their impact on the workflows supported by LabPlot can justify this delay. The source code and the installers for Windows and for Mac OS X can be found on our download page, as usual. In this release we again increased the number of data sources and added the support for the import of data from SQL databases. The user can import either from single tables or import the result of a custom SQL queries.

  • Ick ALPHA-6 released: CI/CD engine
    It gives me no small amount of satisfaction to announce the ALPHA-6 version of ick, my fledgling continuous integration and deployment engine. Ick has been now deployed and used by other people than myself.
