Calculate Linux 18.12 released

We have a bunch of news for this last 2018 release. We have added support for installation on Btrfs with the zstd compression. All server editions have been optimized for size. Software can now be transferred when reinstalling the system. Our ISO images are packed in the zstd format to speed up the startup times for the LiveCD, applications and system installation.

Are available for download: Calculate Linux Desktop featuring the KDE (CLD), Cinnamon (CLDC), Cinnamon (CLDL), Mate (CLDM) or else Xfce (CLDX and CLDXE) environments, Calculate Directory Server (CDS), Calculate Linux Scratch (CLS) and Calculate Scratch Server (CSS).

  • KDE Applications updated to v18.08.3.
  • KDE Plasma updated to v5.14.3.
  • Cinnamon updated to v4.0.3.

  • The format of time can be configured with the cl-setup-boot-live tool.
