The 4MLinux 40 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 40 series.'

4MLinux 40.0 Core BETA released.
This is a core system (only about 15 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 40 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 5.16.14, GNU C Library 2.35, and BusyBox 1.34.1. The 4MLinux 40 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 11.2.0 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

Despite its extremely small size, 4MLinux Core supports both BIOS and UEFI boot modes.

4MLinux 40.0 STABLE released.

The status of the 4MLinux 40.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Edit your documents with LibreOffice 7.3.5 and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.5, GIMP 2.10.32, Gnumeric 1.12.52), share your files using DropBox 143.4.4161, surf the Internet with Firefox 103.0 and Chromium 103.0.5060.53, send emails via Thunderbird 91.12.0, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 4.1, watch your favorite videos with VLC 3.0.17.3 and mpv 0.34.0, play games powered by Mesa 21.3.8 and Wine 7.12. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 5.18.7, Apache 2.4.54, MariaDB 10.8.3, PHP 5.6.40 and PHP 7.4.30). Perl 5.34.1, Python 2.7.18, and Python 3.9.12 are also available.

As always, the new major release has some new features. Legacy MPlayer with MEncoder are now available out of the box (HyperVC can be used as MEncoder’s GUI for transcoding).

New games: GNOME Mahjongg (available out of the box) and Entombed! (available as a downloadable extension).
