Zenwalk 8.0 beta 3 is ready


Hi,

Zenwalk 8.0 beta 3 is ready.

Many, many updates between beta 2 and beta 3 including ffmpeg 3, mplayer 1.3, latest Chromium 49, latest Libreoffice 5.1.1 and a few changes at desktop level :
- full polkit desktop integration for privileges elevation management
- some improvements in system tools
- a few desktop tweakings (ie : intelligent hiding of the back panel)
- all audio production tools have been updated (thanks to Emurikku)

And, last but not least : for your security a "diod" firewall service has been added.

ISO is available from zenwalk mirrors :
http://download.zenwalk.org/x86_64/8.0/ ... 0beta3.iso
http://zen-repo.meticul.eu/x86_64/8.0/z ... 0beta3.iso

Have fun
jp

Thumbs up

I have been using Zenwalk 8.0 beta 3 for a couple of weeks now. I like it very much, a brief review is here, in this thread.

I intended to add the fluxbox wm, but I am liking the new xfce enough that
I may not bother.
