NEWS 170607 ABOUT Exton|OS with Mate 1.18.0 and Refracta Tools
The Desktop Environment is Mate 1.18 (A fork of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems).

Program content in build 170607: Refracta Tools, Firefox, Gimp, Vlc and GParted. Also all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. All packages have been updated to the latest available version as at June 7, 2017. Study the NEW PACKAGE list. Google Chrome has been removed since it’s possible now to use Netflix in Firefox.

WHAT’S NEW in MATE 1.18?

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.11?

IMPORTANT ABOUT REFRACTA TOOLS
Refracta tools are pre-installed in Exton|OS Mate Build 170607. Use them to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. I mean create your own installable Ubuntu 17.04 Live DVD once you have installed Exton|OS to hard drive. I mean change everything and then create a whole new Ubuntu live system. Start Refracta from Applications >> System Tools >> Refracta Snapshot. You don’t even have to install Exton|OS to hard drive before you can use the Refracta tools. If you have plenty of RAM you can create a new (your own!) Ubuntu system while running Exton|OS from DVD or a USB stick. Please note that the whole Refracta process (creating your new ISO) will only take 5 – 10 min! You’ll find the ISO in /home/snapshots. (Or change that in /etc/refractasnapshot.conf). The whole thing is very simple. Refracta Installer replaces Ubiquity (Ubuntu’s installer). Refracta Installer is also very simple to use. No “expert knowledge” is needed.

    Softpedia 170612: "After informing us of the release of a new build of his Android-based RaspAnd operating system for Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computers, Arne Exton announced the availability of Exton|OS Build 170609.

    Coming about half a year after the previous update, Exton|OS Build 170609 seems to be a massive release that moves to the latest Linux 4.11 kernel series and updates the MATE desktop environment to version 1.18. All the core components in Exton|OS Build 170609 have been updated to their latest version as of June 7, 2017.

    A significant change in this release is that Mozilla Firefox replaces Google Chrome as default web browser because it's now possible to use it for watching Netflix movies out-of-the-box. Popular apps like VLC Media Player, GIMP and GParted are also included, and you can study the full package list to see what's inside.

    Another cool new features of the Exton|OS Build 170609 release is that it ships with the Refracta tools pre-installed so you can build your own Ubuntu 17.04-based Live ISO system. The best part when using Refracta tools is that you don't even have to install Exton|OS on your PC to use it to remaster your own live Ubuntu system."
