This release features the linux kernel 3.10.12 and is exclusively meant to run on 64bit CPUs. The KDE Plasma Desktop ships with version 4.11.2. Chromium was updated to version 29, VLC to 2.1 and LibreOffice to version 4.1.2.3. We ship with the latest and greatest multimedia codecs preinstalled aswell as the flashplayer. For wireless diagnosis we ship Wireshark, Aircrack-ng and kismon.

We took a lot effort in cleaning up the system(like discussed in the forum) and removed Eclipse aswell as muon software center and qapt-deb-installer.
We added the brand new version 2.1 of VLC which comes with lots of improvements in audio and device management. We removed pavucontrol which is no longer used as we don’t ship pulseaudio. Kernel 3.10.12 comes with patched zram to prevent freezes.
We also added a renewed quick installation manual.
