Zenwalk Linux 7.2 RC5
Jean-Philippe Guillemin has announced the availability of the fifth release candidate for Zenwalk Linux 7.2, a Slackware-based desktop distribution: "Zenwalk Linux 7.2 RC5 is ready for testing. Lately we've been looking towards a better Slackware compatibility, which will make it easy to switch to 64-bit in a near future using the Slackware64 package base. In fact Pat has updated GTK+ 2 and many other packages, added GTK+ 3, making it possible to replace many Zenwalk packages with very little adaptation. The work may not be finished, it's up to you to find any remaining bugs. Main changes: Linux kernel 3.4.8 with BFS scheduler; Xfce 4.10, LibreOffice 3.5, GTK+ 2.24.10 and 3.4.4, Thunderbird 14, GIMP 2.8, Firefox 14.0.1; Netpkg 4.9.1 with multi-mirror support." Here is the brief release announcement. Download: zenwalk-7.2RC5.iso (654MB, MD5).
