Linux News Today: Antergos 2016.06.14 ISOs Are Out Now, the Last to Offer Support for 32-Bit PCs
Antergos’ Dustin Falgout announced just a few minutes ago, June 15, 2016, that the latest ISO images for the Arch Linux-based operating system are now available for download.
There’s really nothing out of the ordinary in the Antergos 2016.06.14 ISO refresh, with the exception of the fact that this will be the last one to offer support for 32-bit platforms. What does this mean? Well, the next ISO images will come only in a 64-bit format, for modern computers, which means that you won’t be able to install Antergos on those old and dusty PCs.
However, this does not imply that the 32-bit support that has been offered until today to users who are running Antergos on 32-bit computers will end, as the distribution’s maintainers promise to provide updates for the 32-bit packages available in the main software repositories.
“We are discontinuing the 32bit versions of our install media. This will be the last release that includes 32bit media. This change applies to the install media only. We will continue to maintain 32bit packages in our repository for the foreseeable future,” explain the devs in today’s announcement.
Download the last Antergos 32-bit ISO image now
The Antergos 2016.06.14 ISOs releases are here to update the packages for live and minimal install environments, as well as to fix an issue reported by users from the previous Antergos 2016.05.28 ISO refresh with the installer, which, apparently didn’t start automatically for some reason. The issue is now fixed.
You can download the Antergos 2016.06.14 64-bit and 32-bit ISO images right now via our website. Again, please note that this is the last ISO refresh to come in the 32-bit format, so if you plan on installing Antergos on 32-bit PCs, keep it in a safe place. In related news, Antergos users are now receiving the latest Cinnamon 3.0 and MATE 1.14 desktop environments.
