Salix Xfce 14.2 is coming with a lot of updated artworks. It has got a new default wallpaper and Adwaita is being used as default widget theme. It is expected that, these changes will make this operating system more usable.


Original release announcement for Salix Xfce 14.2 beta 1 is available in Salix forum.
The menus that the images boot to are provided by syslinux on systems equiped with BIOS. On UEFI systems, the 64-bit iso now boots using elilo, in place of grub, and it provides similar menus to syslinux. The 32-bit iso now includes both the i586 non-PAE and the i686 PAE kernels. You can choose between the two in the boot menu.

In terms of software selection, Xfce has been upgraded to 4.12. The main browser has been changed back to Firefox. Also, network configuration is now handled by NetworkManager. Pulseaudio is now controlling the audio output by default, which should help a lot with bluetooth speakers, HDMI audio etc. Other than that it's mostly the same as in previous releases, with LibreOffice, Claws-Mail, Gimp, Parole, Transmission, Viewnior, Zim etc. Everything has been upgraded to their latest release at this point. Of course, the usual collection of Salix System Tools is included as well.
