Distribution Release: CAELinux 2020

  • Joël Cugnoni has announced the release of CAELinux 2020, a new version of the project’s specialist distribution that features a collection of open-source tools designed for computer-aided engineering, based on Xubuntu 18.04: “I am happy to announce that a new CAELinux version is ready to download. CAELinux 2020 is based on Xubuntu 18.04 and, as usual, it is customized to offer many open-source simulation tools for stress analysis, thermal or fluid flow simulation and other physics, but it also contain a full range of mathematical modeling, graphic, design, CAD/CAM and prototyping software which makes it ideal for running a Fablab or a MakerSpace using purely open-source tools. CAELinux 2020 had many issues mostly related to the installer and live DVD creation or boot. The causes were related to the large size of the ISO image which could not be handled properly by most boot codes. As many software that we include become also much larger, we had to find a solution to keep proposing a full CAE workstation despite the usual 4 GB constrain on ISO images. We have now found a way to go past the barrier and still produce a valid ISO image.” See the complete release announcement for further information and a list of new features. The CAELinux 2020 ISO image is available from SourceForge in the form of three separate files compressed with 7z (SHA256, pkglist): caelinux2020.iso.7z.001 (2,048MB), caelinux2020.iso.7z.002 (2,048MB), caelinux2020.iso.7z.003 (1,771MB).
