Solus project announced the update to stable version of Solus 2017.04.18 features up-to-date snapshot of Budgie desktop environment. Solus is an independent Linux distribution which uses the eopkg package manager (a fork of the PiSi package manager). The new snapshot, Solus 2017.01.01.0, is available in three editions (Budgie, Gnome and MATE): “We’re proud to announce our second ISO image snapshot, 2017.04.18.0, across our Budgie and MATE editions, as well as our new GNOME edition. This snapshot is the culmination of months of work across nearly every aspect of our operating system, ranging from multiple under-the-hood upgrades and changes to improvements to our desktop experiences. This snapshot is the first to deliver bulletproof boot management out-of-the-box, leveraging clr-boot-manager to enable the maintenance and garbage collection of kernels, as well as configuration of the bootloader. Furthermore, clr-boot-manager enables the retention of known-working kernels, so you can always roll back to a prior kernel if a kernel upgrade results in the inability to boot. This gives users even more confidence in upgrading their system, and ensures that their running systems will just keep working as expected. This snapshot features the brand new Budgie 10.3.1 release. Budgie 10.3 is the last incarnation of the 10.x series, with only minor updates to the 10.3 releases being planned, and opening the door for development of the Qt 5-based Budgie 11.” You can read complete release announcement here.
