Happy New Year to all! Now that the holidays are over it’s time to get back to work or unless you were like me and got to work through the holidays, so is life.
So I am continuously testing the Sabayon Forensics XFCE x86-64 edition and happy to see that things are nice and stable for me. I haven’t heard any complaints from anyone either, so all good it seems.
I’ve been looking at this ARM stuff and slowly trying to grasp all of it. Fabio has been busy with the ARMv7 stuff on his beagleboard. A wiki page is even been dedicated to it. If you are interested in it, be sure to see those links to learn more. I’ve been eyeing up the Pandaboard lately as it seems to offer plenty. If you’re interested in testing and developing, give a shout to our mail list and let us know.
Fabio is gonna take a much needed short holiday and than the plans will be set in motion to get a Sabayon 8 out the door. The daily iso is working so well that I’m not seeing much effort needed to push this one out. A new artwork package was talked about so will see where that ends up at. I myself would like to see something new and refreshing. My current desktop looks something like this:
Regardless, if you’re keeping your system up to date, you are rolling right along with the changes. Keep up to date and keep reporting any bugs. Please see this bug for the Sabayon 8 release stuff, just append to it. We kinda want to get Sabayon 8 out the door by end of February, sooner the better.
2012 is looking good for Sabayon. We have more people helping with the server stuff. We got the ARM project in motion. I’m still seeing the flow of Ubuntu refugees arriving and loving Sabayon. It’s good to have yas onboard btw. The recent reviews I have read have all been very positive. Also, it sounds like Fabio will be rewritting a new Sulfur from scratch for Sabayon 9 release later this year, hopefully mid-year. So good news for the Sulfur or Entropy Store users. So stick around and invite a friend or two.
