CrunchBang Linux 11 R20121015
Philip Newborough has announced the availability of a new development build of CrunchBang, a lightweight Debian-based distribution featuring the Openbox window manager: "It has been approximately three months since the previous 'Waldorf' images were built, so I figured the time was right to upload some updated builds. To be honest, I was tempted to wait until Debian 'Wheezy' migrates to stable before updating the builds, but Debian being Debian (released when ready), it could mean waiting a week, a month, or even a year. Anyhow, the new images contain some fixes to the installer that affected installations performed using DVD media. Personally, I tend to install via a USB stick, so I had not come across the bug myself, until somebody else mentioned it. The bug appeared as an error message just before the GRUB install screen, where it asked the user to insert an additional disk." Here is the full release announcement listing the most notable changes. Download (MD5): crunchbang-11-20130119-amd64.iso (751MB, torrent).
