Maui 1 “Aurora” released


The Maui team is happy to announce the release of Maui 1 “Aurora”.

This is the continuation of the ubuntu-based desktop version of Netrunner (read about it here).

The biggest underlying change has been rebasing Maui from Kubuntu to KDE neon (Xenial LTS).

That means Maui will now be receiving continous updates and support until the next ubuntu-based LTS in 2018.

During that timeframe, we plan to release updated ISO versions every 3-4 months with the latest KDE software plus other updates.

Maui 1 starts with shipping the following software versions (excerpt):

    • Linux Kernel 4.4.0~36
    • Plasma 5.7.3 on Qt5.7.0
    • Frameworks 5.24
    • KDE Applications 16.04.3
    • Firefox 48.0
    • Thunderbird 38.6.0
    • LibreOffice 5
    • Virtualbox 5
    • VLC 2.2.2
    • Gmusicbrowser 1.1.15
    • Kamoso 3.2

and many moreā€¦
