GoboLinux 014 development snapshots

For the process of stabilizing the GoboLinux 014 ISO and get it ready for release, we are now starting a series of development snapshots. The idea is to make it easier for people to see where we're at now, and to make it easier for people willing to help in testing out the release to "jump in" and get it to a state real close to where the live development is.

The latest snapshot is always available at the downloads page.

All feedback is greatly welcome. Please give it a spin and report any problems in the bug tracker.

New online recipe viewer

The GoboLinux website now has a new online search tool for recipes: recipes.gobolinux.org, which you can also access from the "chef hat" icon on this page. It has many nice features such as search by descriptions, crosslinked dependencies and the ability to view files from recipes. Many thanks to mpb, who is the developer and maintainer.

Wallpaper contest

The wallpaper for the LiveCD desktop has endured many releases and served very well through all these years giving that extra spice of quirkyness to this already unconventional distro, but as all things come to an end, it is time to retire it. What will take the place of the mysterious penguin feet? It's up to you to come up with. Yes, it's a wallpaper contest -- send in your proposals to gobo AT gobolinux.org and we'll post them online. Submission is open for two weeks (until May 19th).
