• Zbigniew Konojacki has announced the release of 4MLinux 32.0, the latest update of the project’s minimalist distribution featuring “four Ms”: maintenance (as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for playing video DVDs and other multimedia files), mini-server (using the inetd daemon) and mystery (providing several small Linux games). This version updates most base packages and adds several new software applications: “The status of the‭ 4MLinux 32.0 series has been changed to STABLE. As always, the new major release has some new features. Better support for Intel video cards (via MESA 3D drivers with VDPAU emulation). PCManFM in 4MLinux can now create video thumbnails (using FFmpeg) as well as PS/PDF thumbnails (using ImageMagick). AV1 video decoding is finally available out of the box (via FFmpeg with the dav1d library). Good news for nerds! The following applications have been added for them: SciTE (source code editor), GNU nano (with spell checker), mg (originally called MicroGnuEmacs). Additionally, Vim (with gVim) is now available as a downloadable extension.” Continue to the release announcement for further information and a screenshot.
