Ikey Doherty proudly announced yesterday, August 17th, the immediate availability for download of the SolusOS 1.2 Linux distribution.
SolusOS 1.2 is the second maintenance release of the 1.x branch of the SolusOS distribution, bringing better GPU, bluetooth and printer support, as well as many system-wide optimisations and fixes.
“The main reason for a updated ISO is so that users do not have to download hundreds of megs in updates for a new install of Eveline. The 1.2 ISO’s are fully up to date including our latest kernel builds.”
“We’ve done some further optimisations to speed Eveline up even further. A visual refresh was given to Eveline to keep it current. If you’re running Eveline a simple “dist-upgrade” should bring you up to date. Anyone experiencing issues should check the SolusOS forums.” - said Ikey Doherty in the release announcement for SolusOS 1.2.
