Release Notes for the first development release of siduction-Gnome 2012.2.5

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)
