The 4MLinux 43 series.


This thread is for tracking the development of the 4MLinux 43 series.

4MLinux 43.0 Core BETA released.

This is a core system (only about 15 MB in size) for the 4MLinux 43 series. The system includes: the Linux kernel 6.1.10, GNU C Library 2.37, and BusyBox 1.36.1. The 4MLinux 43 series uses GNU Compiler Collection 12.2.1 to compile programs designed for the x86_64 architecture.

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

4MLinux 43.0 STABLE released.

The status of the 4MLinux 43.0 series has been changed to STABLE. Edit your documents with LibreOffice 7.5.5 and GNOME Office (AbiWord 3.0.5, GIMP 2.10.34, Gnumeric 1.12.55), surf the Internet with Firefox 115.0.2 and Chrome 115.0.5790.110, send emails via Thunderbird 115.0.1, enjoy your music collection with Audacious 4.3.1, watch your favorite videos with VLC 3.0.18 and SMPlayer 23.6.0, play games powered by Mesa 23.1.1 and Wine 8.12. You can also setup the 4MLinux LAMP Server (Linux 6.1.33, Apache 2.4.57, MariaDB 10.6.14, PHP 5.6.40, PHP 7.4.33, and PHP 8.1.19.). Perl 5.36.0, Python 2.7.18, Python 3.11.3, and Ruby 3.1.4 are also available.

As always, the new major release has some new features. SoundFonts (for FluidSynth) and mtPaint (raster graphics editor) have been added. A few Java-based games (Flappy Bird, Karoshi, Micropolis, and Zuma) as well as a set proprietary web browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Opera) are now available as downloadable extensions. XMMS in 4MLinux is now able to play a huge number of old sound formats (originating from Amiga, Atari, Commodore, ZX Spectrum and the like). On the other hand, you can use the same XMMS to watch modern AVC/HEVC videos.
