PostX 0.4.4. has arrived

PostX Gnu/Linux is built from free software. It uses Debian’s main repository together with Techtimejourney’s repository as software sources. I have added contrib and non-free to the sources list of the iso images – just to make it more easier for the users to install what they might need.

This is the final release with Debian Jessie(now: oldstable). PostX Gnu/Linux uses OpenRC as an init system – this trend will continue.

PostX 0.4.2 is released as 32-bit and 64-bit

PostX 0.4.2 is released. If you need extra instructions then look at the previous 0.4 series release notes, which still mostly apply.

New features / changes since 0.4.1:

– Software packages are updated.
-Vlc is removed from the distribution (more on the reasons later).
– Slim is removed. Desktop is started with startx now. Slim was getting unstable at times.

-Albix Player is added as a music player. The player handles(at least): ogg, mp3, wav and flac files.
-Sequence FM is now the default. Crosslinker FM is still found within the Openbox menu.

-Volume keys are now working similar to Vol2x. This means that you can control multiple sound device volumes with a single key. Volume keys also have toggle mute & sound enabled functionality now.

– OpenRC returns. PostX 0.4.1 was a Systemd release. For some people it produced bad results in performance and stability. Because of the previous OpenRC is now the default of 0.4.2 release.
