Beta 2 Released!

Sun May 17, 2015 11:00 pm

From the top-bit (yknow, the marketing/blog-sounding bit)

"The Solus Project team are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Solus Operating System Beta 2. This release is available for 64-bit systems, and is now available for EFI machines.

This release is the first new ISO since our project rebrand, and marks many technological changes. We’ve switched to HTTPS-only software repositories and implemented delta updates with highly compressed packages for quick, safe and bandwidth-friendly software management. Driver management is now available for NVIDIA users, and AMD driver management will feature in the coming weeks."

Do you have a rough idea of the sort of timeline, unexpected hitches notwithstanding, for CUPS, WINE, etc?

I read the rest of the Release post - 'coming soon'.

I'll have a chat with Ikey and we'll hash out a revised timetable for these and other items.

Congrats on the new b2 release... :)

Am I safe to assume that a full upgrade to what was an early alpha install will bring me up to full 'b2' specs.?

Code: Select all

Thanks guys.

Upgrading from any Evolve install will get you to Beta 2.
