SparkyLinux 4.5.2 VM Images Released for VirtualBox and VMware

SparkyLinux project released the latest version based on Debian’s testing branch ‘SparkyLinux 4.5.2’ in several desktop editions: “Changes between 4.4 and 4.5: Full system upgrade as of November 29, 2016; Linux kernel 4.8.7 as default (4.8.12 available in Sparky ‘unstable’ repository); Firefox 45.5.0 ESR (Firefox 50.0.2 available in our repository); Icedove 45.4 (Thunderbird 45.5.1 available in our repository); LibreOffice 5.2.3-rc1; glibc 2.24, systemd 232-6, Python 2.7.12 and 3.5.2, GCC 5.4.1 and 6.2.0; added two new desktops to be installed via the MinimalGUI/CLI and APTus – CDE (Common Desktop Environment), DDE (Deepin Desktop Environment). The new images provide a Virtualbox related bug fix, which has been solved via the latest updates from Debian testing repos. If you have Sparky already installed – you do not need to reinstall your system, simply keep it up to date. So, the updated iso images let you play, test and install Sparky inside the VirtualBox virtual machine, as before.
