After some considerations I decided to rename the upcoming new version to 0.2 since the design of the system has changed somewhat noticeably. For example, installer derived from Linux Mint Debian Edition is now a default, 4 new/improved Audax programs are also appearing along with new wallpapers, which have short-key instructions integrated to them. The underlying design has also changed as a newer kernel brings some stability and performance for programs like Abiword, which used to be troublesome in the past.
The fact that Audax now comes to be more command line oriented (but not harder to use) also contributes towards the case that 0.1.4 should be renamed as 0.2. One of my original milestones was to build a usable lightweight system and my original idea was that I would likely complete the steps I now have done towards the end of 2015. As many of you might have noticed Audax has undergone quite a rapid development from its initial release, which happened during November 2014. I must admit that I have found developing and improving things to be quite nice and educational – but certainly my rapid approach to things has been somewhat unorthodoxical. All the previous having said, I hope you will enjoy Audax 0.2. The development will continue but the rate of it will slow down towards more sensible release ratios in the future – since now the majority of the distribution’s issues, which really troubled me have been fixed in 0.2.
The next version of Audax will be released (if all goes well) on the 17th of February. The reason for postponing the release is the case that I want to substantially improve my current designs. By taking a bit more time to tweak things the next version of Audax will be more robust than ever. I am also taking a seven day hiatus from techtimejourney so that I can focus on delivering as high quality release as I can.
