12.04.3 Released

posted Nov 28, 2013, 11:22 PM by Jack Radigan   [ updated Nov 29, 2013, 4:22 AM ]
This release upgrades the desktop to Xfce4 4.10.2+ and includes the 4.11 versions of xfwm4 and xfce4-session.. The Centrych desktop profile gets a customized notification theme, and both desktop profiles now use whiskermenu. The GNOME and KDE services are no longer started on default, which provides additional RAM savings and shortens login time.

Also present is the most recent version of LibreOffice, 4.1.3. The current stable release of open-vm-tools is included and has been modified to build properly under all LTS supported kernels; 3.2, 3.5, 3.8, and the soon to be released 3.11.  Finally, grub2 has been updated to 2.00-19 and modified to select the most appropriate kernel when multiple kernels are installed for a given version.

ISO disc images can be accessed via the downloads page. Additionally, a short video overview of the new features in this release is available and the release notes contain additional information about this release.

Note: as with previous Centrych releases, you can upgrade an existing installation without having to download either of these ISO images. Please refer to the upgrade notes for details on how to do this.
