The Q4OS team have informed Softpedia today, June 27, 2016, about the immediate availability for download of a new maintenance release in the stable “Orion” series of the Debian-based GNU/Linux operating system.
Q4OS 1.4.12 “Orion” is now the latest and most advanced version of the distribution build around the Trinity desktop environment, and it has received all the important security patches and software updates from the upstream Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 “Jessie” repositories, along with a couple of other improvements requested by users.
For example, Q4OS 1.4.12 brings various much-needed enhancements to the native Desktop Profiler utility included in the operating system, such as an optimized “software to install” list. Additionally, there are the usual under-the-hood fixes that should increase the overall stability and reliability of the OS.
“Important bug fixes and various improvements are provided. The Q4OS native Desktop Profiler tool has got new optimized ‘software to install’ list. All the updates are available for existing Q4OS users from the current Q4OS repositories,” reads today’s announcement.
If you’re using the Q4OS 1.4.11 “Orion” or a previous release, you can easily update to today’s Q4OS 1.4.12 version by applying all the updates that have been released through the distribution’s main software repositories. Newcomers to this distro can download the 32- and 64-bit ISO images of Q4OS 1.4.12 right now via our website.
Please note that Q4OS comes with both installable-only and Live ISO images, so if you just want to test-drive the operating system without installing it on your personal computer, we recommend downloading the Live CDs. The Raspberry Pi image has not been updated at this time.
