TheSSS 23.0 available for download.

This is a major release based on the 4MLinux Server 23.0, meaning that the components of the LAMP server are now: Linux 4.9.52, Apache 2.4.28, MariaDB 10.2.9, and PHP (5.6.31 and 7.0.24).

Hi ZK,
Thought I let you know that in 4MLinux 23.0 STABLE internet/modem connection doesn't work,
even after configuring. Usually it works out of the box.
The screen resolution is quite odd too. I can only choose between 1024x768 and 800x600. Normally the resolution is
1280x800.
I got all sorts of warnings during shutting down.

My machine is a HP 6730b. That shouldn't be an issue.
Using a usb stick with 23.3 now, no problem.

Greetings!
