I am announcing the release of ConnochaetOS 0.9.1. This is a maintenance release. The ConnochaetOS 0.9.0 ISO was downloaded 20,000 times. The Free Software Foundation examined every package very closely and said, that we meet the FSF' criteria at this point. So we consider that the ConnochaetOS project is a success.
Since the 0.9.0 release many bugs were fixed. The default kernel was upgraded to Linux-Libre 18.104.22.168 and many other packages were upgraded and we released many security fixes.
ConnochaetOS 0.9.1 provides:
Optional are available:
and many other packages.
ConnochaetOS is a libre GNU/Linux distribution which follows the “Guidelines for Free System Distributions”. See http://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html for more information.
You can get the ISO at http://downloads.sourceforge.net/connochaetos/connos-0.9.1.iso md5sum
ConnochaetOS is a free operating system for the desktop with old computers in mind but with modern lightweight software.
The name ConnochaetOS derives from “Connochaetes”, the scientific name for “Gnu”.
We decided to base ConnochaetOS on Arch Linux, but completely rebuild, since we want to support i586, and replace some packages with our own ones, because of footprint, stability or freedom.
Any help is wanted and welcome. For more Information have a look at the forum
