Linux

Warren has released rc2 of SimplyMEPIS 7.0. The 7.0 rc2 master image contains package updates from Debian as well as a bug fix and security update of the kernel to version 2.6.22.14.

The mepis-config is updated to include a fix for the predefined group memberships for new users, a new kdm theme, and a change to the default package pools to include debian-volatile updates. The mepis-manual, written by community members, is also updated.

By user request, fglrx driver 8.43.2-1 and gtk2-engines 2.12.2-1 are now in the MEPIS 7.0 pool.

When asked about the release schedule, Warren said "As I've said before, there have been delays due to my limited availability the past two months. But now I'm glad to announce that everything is on track for a final release no later than Dec 19."
