Linux News Today: 4MLinux 18.0 Launches July 1, 2016, First Beta Release Is Out for Public Testing
Following on last week’s release of 4MLinux Core 18.0 Beta distrolette, Zbigniew Konojacki today informs Softpedia about the availability for public testing of the Beta release of the upcoming 4MLinux 18.0 operating system.
As expected, 4MLinux 18.0 Beta is out today based on the 4MLinux Core 18.0 edition, which is, in fact, the base of all the rest of the 4MLinux sister projects, including, but not limited to, 4MRescueKit, 4MParted, and 4MRecover.
And it looks like the major change implemented in the 4MLinux 18.0 Beta release, which should remain pretty much the same until the final build hits the streets on July 1, 2016, is the use of the brand-new GNU C Library (Glibc) 2.23.
“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 the GNU C Library 2.23,” said Zbigniew Konojacki in today’s announcement.
Also, the 4MLinux developer managed to fix the issue with logging into Wi-Fi networks that used the CCMP (CCM mode Protocol) encryption, which was reported by users from previous 4MLinux releases.
Therefore, if you want to jump into the 4MLinux 18.0 Beta bandwagon, we recommend grabbing the Live ISO image, which includes only 32-bit optimized packages, right now via our website and report any bugs you might find.
