Description: "SalineOS 1.6 images are now available for download. This brings SalineOS in line with the recent 6.0.4 release from Debian GNU/Linux. New in this release is a set of Thunar custom actions and scripts to greatly increase the functionality of the Thunar file manager. These include: open a directory as root, open a root terminal here, mark as executable, run an MD5SUM, convert stupid image formats (NGG, MDF) to standard ISO images, a simple disk usage utility, mount/unmount an ISO, convert to ODT, Export to PDF, search for files or folders using Catfish, rotate resize scale and convert image files, write an ISO or IMG file to a USB key and edit a text file as root. You can get all these custom actions on any previous release of SalineOS by running a command in a root terminal."

Pros: Reliable and easy
Cons: none



Most of what I said in my previous reviews still applies, save that Parole now works perfectly. The improvements to Thunar mentioned above are really useful, especially the ability to switch to root from within the browser. Another nice touch is the icon on the panel for removing cookies, even the sticky flash ones. If the pdf manual is not enough, the forum is friendly and helpful. If you find Gnome and KDE bloated and don't want the rolling-release approach of Mintís Xfce, this is the best Debian derivative.
