[Stable Update] 2018-02-03 – Kernels, LibreOffice, Browsers, Thunderbird, PHP, Haskell

system_software_updateHi community,

We have some new Kernels, removed some of our EOL kernels, pushed out some Browser updates, worked on Architect Installer, updated VLC-Nightly to v3.0-rc9, had some regular upstream updates like PHP7, latest Python/Haskell updates/rebuilds and renewed some of our Themes. Additionally we released new install medias (v17.1.4) based on this update.

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found here.

Remember, we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on. Please adopt to another distribution, if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.

[Stable Update] 2018-01-29 – Kernels, Mesa, Xorg-Server, Browsers, MSM, MHWD, GCC

system_software_updateHi community,

with this we updated most of our Kernels, Mesa, Firefox, GCC. We also worked on our Adapta theme, downgraded the Intel microcode as needed puls reworked our Firmwares a little in regard of iwlwifi.

As usual we have some Haskell and Python rebuilds/updates. Bernhard and I worked on the Real-Time Kernels and updated them both to v4.14 series. We use now meta-pkgs to define them for you. Some work went into our Steam-Client and we managed to get more extra-modules compiled for our v4.15 kernel series.

It seems that our french community had some issues changing wallpapers within our XFCE edition. This is now addressed and fixed with our v17.1.3 ISOs by default. For installed systems we recommend to use ‘/usr/share/backgrounds/xfce’ as default folder. The new package will automatically create the needed symlinks for wallpapers added to ‘/usr/share/backgrounds’ from now on.

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found here.

Remember, we only continue with our 64bit architecture from now on. Please adopt to another distribution, if needed on 32bit supported systems, as you may not get any updates on that architecture from us.
