Aftermath

LinuxTag 2012 is over. We had a good time during the 4 days and on the parties at night. Of course a lot of people asked, what the new namechange was all about, but noone was begrudging really. Thanks to the debian and kanotix people for sharing a great booth.

On Friday night we had a little release party at the booth with about 30 attendents, who enjyoed beer, meatballs and a first open build and introduction to our razor-qt release. It was planned that it should be released from there, but we decided to give it some more love and add some eyecandy. So we released it this morning. Downloads are to be found on our mirror site.

Just before LinuxTag 2012 we also did the final release of siduction 12.1 Desperado. Release notes has the details and downloads are also on the mirror site.

Release Notes for siduction
2012.1 – Desperado

We are pleased to present our first release of siduction in 2012. siduction is released ~4 times per year and is based on the Debian Unstable repository. Thank you for thoroughly testing our release candidate and posting bugs. We hope, we squashed them all.

siduction 2012.1 ‘Desperado’ is shipped with 3 Desktop-Environments: KDE SC 4.8.3, XFCE 4.8 and LXDE, all in 32- and 64-bit variants. LXDE still fits a CD, KDE SC and XFCE fail to do so. Moving them to a USB-device with dd or cat to install from seems appropriate if your hardware supports booting from USB. (please refer to our manual)

Short Core Meeting

We had a short formal meeting tonight to decide, we have to delay our planned RC for 2012.1 for probably 2 days. The reason is that KDE SC does not build today. On the flipside of this we might see KDE SC 4.8.4 in the RC.

Here is a quick sneak preview:
