Frugalware 1.3pre2 (Haven) released

2010-06-28 - Posted by Miklos Vajna

The Frugalware Developer Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Frugalware 1.3pre2, the second technical preview of the upcoming 1.3 stable release.

Here are some of the major improvements and changes since 1.3pre1:

  • Improvements:
    • The monolithic configuration of XOrg is now split to the xorg.conf.d directory. You can still use the monolithic config, but the config files in the new directory have priority.
    • Updated image libraries: libjpeg 8 and libpng 1.4. While adding support for these new libraries, we touched 1500+ packages, doing various minor fixes and improvements here and there.
  • Package updates:
    • Linux 2.6.34
    • KDE SC 4.4.4
    • Mozilla Firefox 3.6.4
    • OpenOffice.org 3.2.1
    • Updated libraries: jack, libpng, libjpeg.
