Linux News Today: 4MLinux 19.0 Distro to Ship with GCC 6.1.0 and Qt 5.7, Public Beta Out Now
Zbigniew Konojacki informs Softpedia about the availability of the public Beta release f his upcoming 4MLinux 19.0 GNU/Linux distribution, which comes one week after the release of the 4MLinux 19.0 Core edition.
As reported by us in the second week of July, the Beta release of 4MLinux 19.0 Core, which the developer uses as the base for all the distributions and distrolettes that are being distributed as part of the 4MLinux family, including 4MParted, 4MRescueKit, BakAndImgCD, 4MRecover, and Antivirus Live CD, the operating system uses the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.1.0.
However, we now know that the final release of the 4MLinux 19.0 GNU/Linux distribution, which should see the light of day on September 1, 2016, will also ship with the latest Qt 5.7.0 GUI (Graphical User Interface) toolkit. Of course, there will also be major updates among the core components and applications that are incorporated in the upcoming operating system.
“4MLinux 19.0 Beta is ready for testing. Basically, at this stage of development, 4MLinux Beta has the same features as 4MLinux Stable, but it provides a huge number of updated packages, including a major change in the core of the system, which now uses GNU Compiler Collection 6.1.0. The latest stable Qt (5.7.0) has also been included,” said Zbigniew Konojacki in the release announcement.
Please study the package list if you want to know what versions will be included in 4MLinux 19.0, and, as expected, you can download the ISO image of the Beta release right now via our website, but please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release version, which means that it’s not suitable for deployment in production environments or for use a your daily driver.
