The ZevenOS-Neptune Team is pleased to announce the release of ZevenOS-Neptune 1.9.9.
This release comes with a couple of changes and new features. See the changelog for a full changelog.
We updated the Kernel to version 188.8.131.52 which comes with neat little features like better hardware support for wireless and the famous cgroups patch which brings more speed under heavy load. The underlying Debian Squeeze system was upgraded to Debian Testing (alias Wheezy) which will provide newer applications through the lifecycle of Neptune 1.9.9.
KDE SC 4.6.2 makes it debut in ZevenOS-Neptune 1.9.9 with lots of updates and the typical Neptune look & feel and a new default font, the Ubuntu Font.
For the sake of consistency we replaced Synaptic & Software Center with its KDE/QT based counterparts Muon & Kpackagekit.
Libreoffice replaces OpenOffice.org and the contact management software people was upgraded to version 0.3 which brings better vcard support and a new layout.
With Snapshot Manager we introduce a new cool feature which allows you to easily customize your live system and save the customization to a file that you can share with your friends & colleagues.
The Harddisk Installer has been rewritten and allows you to install ZevenOS-Neptune 1.9.9 faster than ever.
