News Comments Off on PCLinuxOS MATE Edition 2019.07 Release zstd

PCLinuxOS MATE ISO Edition has been updated and now available for download at
http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/live-cd/64bit/

md5sum: 59e9870beb1624659c4185701c7d99f0
Size: 2.0 gig

We decided to compress our MATE Edition ISO in zstd compression format instead of the actually used xz compression format. Zstd archives are marginally larger, but the system boots faster with it. The system installs in no time and applications start in a flash from the live media.

Kernel 5.2.1
MATE 1.22.1
PulseAudio 12.99.1

This ISO comes with the standard compliment of MATE applications plus LibreOffice. Some additional applications include

– Timeshift – backup and restore utility
– Bitwarden –  a free and open source password management solution
– RawTherapee – photo manipulation software(Gimp also included)
– Megasync – store your files in the cloud
– Teamviewer – control another computer from yours
– Simplenotes – a note-taking application with markdown support
– Kodi – a multimedia center
– Kazam – a screen capture utility
– Calibre – the one stop solution for all your e-book needs.

Plus much much more like Firefox, Thunderbird, Strawberry music player and VLC.

– fully updated as of 19 July 2019

News Comments Off on KDE Frameworks • 5.60.0

The KDE Framework packages have been updated to 5.60.0. These should be the final KDE package updates for the month of July. There are many packages in this update but updating should go fairly quickly as most of the packages are small. It is recommended that you reboot after the update is complete so the new libraries can load.
