Linux News Today: Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 "Erik" Will Ship with GNOME 3.20 and Linux Kernel 4.4 LTS
The developers of the Debian-based Parsix GNU/Linux operating system briefly announced this morning, March 23, 2016, on their Twitter account, a few juicy details about the next major release of the distribution.
For those of you not in the known, Parsix GNU/Linux is a small distro based on the latest stable release of the popular Debian GNU/Linux operating system, it is actively developed and ships with some of the newest technologies and open-source software projects.
Right now, there are two supported versions of Parsix GNU/Linux available for download: the current 8.5r0 (Atticus) release announced on February 14, 2016, and the old stable version, Parsix GNU/Linux 8.0r0a (Mumble), which reaches end of life later this spring, on April 15, 2016.
As such, the project’s maintainers are currently planning the next major release of the distribution, Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10, which has been dubbed Erik and will be built around the brand new GNOME 3.20 desktop environment introduced earlier today, March 23.
Another interesting fact about the upcoming OS is that it will be powered by a kernel from the long-term supported Linux 4.4 series, which will render Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 a stable, reliable, and supported desktop operating system. A release date for Parsix GNU/Linux 8.10 (Erik) is yet to be announced. Stay tuned!
