This version comes with a new Debian base (11 ‘Bullseye’) that offers newer and better hardware support as well as newer software and applications. KDE Plasma 5.20.5 ships with a new Neptune-specific theme that embraces the Breeze widget style for maximum compatibility and it also introduces a new subtle but modern flat look and feel to Neptune. We also updated the icon theme to our own variation of the Tela icon theme to fit with the new look of the system. The default panel has been modernized to allow pinning more apps and tasks to it as well as offering a new bigger and easier look to the eyes. Besides that, Linux kernel 5.10 offers modern hardware support as well as bug fixes.” Here is the complete release announcement with screenshots.

Dimitris Tzemos has announced the release of Slackel 7.5 “Openbox” edition, the latest version of the project’s a desktop Linux distribution based on Slackware’s “current” branch, available for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms: “Slackel 7.5 ‘Openbox’ has been released. It includes the Linux kernel 5.15.12 and the latest updates from Slackware’s ‘current’ tree. The wicd utility has been removed and NetworkManager is now the default application for connecting to networks. Slackel can now be installed on an external 16 or 32 GB USB stick or SSD disk so you can have a portable, fast system always with you. You can also upgrade it to have the latest programs. It is a real installation. You will not notice that you run Slackel from a USB device. The system is fast. Persistence becomes slow after installing some programs. but doing a real installation on an USB stick or external SSD disk will get you a portable Slackel USB in your pocket.” Read the rest of the release announcement for further information and screenshots.
