Release Notes for siduction 2013.1 - Firestarter

Contributed by devil on May 20, 2013 - 09:50 PM

We are very happy to present to you the final release of siduction 2013.1 - Firestarter. Siduction is a distribution based on Debian's unstable branch and we try to release snapshots quarterly.

Siduction 2013.1 is shipped with 5 Desktop-Environments: KDE SC, XFCE, LXDE, GNOME, and Razor-qt, all in 32- and 64-bit variants. From the shipped DEs only LXDE and Razor-Qt fit on a CD with 700 MegaByte. But as CDs become more irrelevant with every day, we are not too worried about this and recommend to use USB-Sticks for installation.

New in this release cycle is GNOME 3, that we are happy to officially present. Also officially shipped for the first time is noX, a variant without a X-Server, meant for users that prefer to work without an X environment completely or wish to build their own environment pretty much from scratch.

The released images are a snapshot of Debian unstable, that also goes by the name of Sid, from 2013-05-20. They are enhanced with some useful packages and scripts, our own installer and a custom patched version of the linux-kernel 3.9.3, accompanied by X-Server 1.12.4-6.

Since Debian has released Wheezy just recently, we use the opportunity to release a current snapshot of the archive, after the opened floodgates after the end of the freeze have flushed a plethora of fresh packages into Sid.


Release Notes for the first development release of siduction-Gnome 2012.2.5

Contributed by devil on Dec 23, 2012 - 07:23 PM

We are very happy to ship a Christmas present to you today that took a couple of years to be delivered. The wish for a Gnome release grew, while sidux was still around. Back in the day, Gnome2 would easily break on upgrades to Debian unstable, so no one ever wanted to maintain that. Things got better over time and for the last three years one person was perpetually nagging us to do this release, and here it is. Angelescu Ovidiu (convbsd) is the man, and he will also maintain it.

The released images are a snapshot of Debian unstable, that also goes by the name of sid, from 2012-12-23. They are enhanced with some useful packages and scripts, our own installer and a custom patched version of the linux-kernel 3.7-1, accompanied by Xorg 7.7+1 with core 1.12.4-4. The release is available for download in 32-bit and and 64-bit versions

We are very happy to present to you the final release of siduction 2012.2 - Riders on the Storm. Siduction is a full live-distribution with an integrated installer, based on Debian's unstable branch, and we try to release snapshots quarterly.

Siduction 2012.2 is shipped with 4 Desktop-Environments: KDE SC, XFCE, LXDE and Razor-qt, all in 32- and 64-bit variants. Razor-Qt is the latest flavour that joins our regular release cycle after seeing a dev-release in the summer.

As the freeze for Debian 7 aka Wheezy will still last some months, we take the opportunity to update and consolidate our package-base with this new release.

Release Notes for the first Release Candidate of siduction 2012.2 - Riders on the Storm

Contributed by devil on Oct 14, 2012 - 10:49 PM

We are exited to share with you the first development release of a new flavour of siduction. As the name suggests, noX is a version of our distribution without a X-server. That might be a interesting release for our users for different reasons.


Release Notes for siduction 2012.1.1 Desperado Reloaded

Contributed by devil on Jun 23, 2012 - 09:56 AM

We today released the 1st fix-release of siduction 2012.1 Desperado, called 2012.1.1 Desperado Reloaded. Besides small enhancements the main reason for this fix-release was to ship the full set of KDE SC 4.8.4.

siduction 2012.1.1 Desperado Reloaded is shipped with 3 Desktop-Environments: KDE SC, XFCE and LXDE, all in 32- and 64-bit variants. LXDE still fits a CD, KDE SC and XFCE fail to do so. Moving them to a USB-device with dd or cat to install from seems appropriate if your hardware supports booting from USB. (please refer to our manual)

The released images are a snapshot of Debian Unstable, that also goes by the name of sid, from 2012-06-24. They are enhanced with some useful packages and scripts, our own installer and a custom patched version of the linux-kernel 3.4.4, accompanied by XServer 1.12.1.

As the freeze for Debian 7 aka Wheezy will begin on June 30 and, from experience, will last at least 8 months, we take the opportunity to ship a fresh snapshot to our users beforehand. This makes the more sense, since KDE SC 4.8.4 is now in unstable as a complete package set. The only exception is kdepim. The Debian-KDE Team has decided to stay with 4.4.11 and thus ship Kmail instead of Kmail2. The KDE SC package set we ship today will most likely be the one to be used in Wheezy.

Another change comes from our decision to change the default setup of akonadi from mysql to sqlite, as we feel, that the full set of mysql is not mandatory for the job.
