Linux News Today: Debian-Based Elive 2.6.12 Beta Linux Distribution Is Out with Improved Installer
The developers behind the Debian- and Enlightenment-based Elive Linux distribution have announced the release and immediate availability for download and testing of a new Beta release.
Elive 2.6 has been in development for quite some time now, and the 2.6.12 Beta release brings more bugfixes, especially for the graphical installer, which is now capable of handling certain scenarios. Additionally, the clock widget has been added and enabled by default on the desktop, and there are also various under-the-hood improvements.
The overall speed process of the installer has also been improved in Elive 2.6.12 Beta, although it still requires users to pay a certain amount of money for the installation. In the meantime, the developers are working on support for 64-bit hardware architectures, as well as on providing more reliable package updates and fixes.
“The Elive Team is proud to announce the release of the beta version 2.6.12,” say the Elive developers in the brief announcement. “We need your feedbacks and reports, each version can include new things not working as expected, if is the case, please contact us on our live chat or report it to from the website!”
You can download Elive 2.6.12 Beta right now from Softpedia, but please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release version, which means that some features are incomplete or missing. Beta versions of software are not stable enough for production use, so we don’t recommend installing it as your sole operating system.
