Gentoo Linux 12 review

Filed under
Gentoo

To the novice user, moving across from Windows to Linux for the first time, the desktop screen of Gentoo Linux will have a more familiar feel than most other versions of the platform.

Appreciating that many Linux distros adopt a similar approach, Gentoo mirrors as closely as it is legal, the initial set-up of a Windows Vista-esque installation; with a standard taskbar, familiar icons, and everything pretty much ready to go. It’s only on closer inspection, things appear different. The default installed icons on the desktop invite you to install Adobe Flash, or launch either a Bug Tracker of Supper Forums. It’s with these, perhaps, that the novice’s hopes may crumble just a little.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
