We are proude to announce the release of ZevenOS 1.9 a preview release for version 2.0

The underlying system has been updated to Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04) which brings speed improvements and new hardware support.

Consider this version as a preview version which is not as stable as version 1.1.

Version 1.9 is recommned for developers and techgeeks. Beginners should stick to version 1.1

A new bootsplash and wallpaper was implemented through the help of the community. (Thanks to anatolij)

Our software was updated to the latest version you also know from the past updates to ZevenOS 1.1, including a improved Deskbar aswell as MAGI 2, DiskManager and People.

Our updated base system Jaunty brings not only more speed but updated applications aswell which fixed a lot of bugs. But the new system brings also some regressions, like the Intel graphics card performance and stability issues aswell as some incompatibility to some old python applications.

Please feel free to discuss the new version in our forum and irc.
