PCLinuxOS 2010 Beta 1 released

Filed under
PCLOS

The PCLinuxOS developers have announced the release of the first beta for the 2010 edition of their Linux distribution. The distribution's goal is to be "radically simple" and easy to use. The latest development release includes a number of changes and updates.

The first beta release of PCLinuxOS-2010 features the 2.6.32.8 Linux kernel and version 4.4.1 of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC). In addition to a reworked menu system with less sub-categories, the developers note that the mylivecd iso creation software has received a major rewrite to better detect devices and that the LiveCD now boots 50% faster than previous releases.

GNOME News: Black Lab Drops GNOME and Further GNOME Experiments in Meson

  • Ubuntu-Based Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 Drops GNOME 3 for MATE Desktop
    Coming about two weeks after the release of Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11, which is based on the Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system using the HWE (hardware enablement) kernel from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 appears to be an unexpected maintenance update addressing a few important issues reported by users lately.
  • 3.26 Developments
    My approach to development can often differ from my peers. I prefer to spend the early phase of a cycle doing lots of prototypes of various features we plan to implement. That allows me to have the confidence necessary to know early in the cycle what I can finish and where to ask for help.
  • Further experiments in Meson
    Meson is definitely getting more traction in GNOME (and other projects), with many components adding support for it in parallel to autotools, or outright switching to it. There are still bugs, here and there, and we definitely need to improve build environments — like Continuous — to support Meson out of the box, but all in all I’m really happy about not having to deal with autotools any more, as well as being able to build the G* stack much more quickly when doing continuous integration.
