Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 released with Swami Control Panel installed by default

The Bodhi Linux team has announced release of Bodhi Linux 4.2.0, a regular update release in Bodhi Linux 4.x series. This release comes with updated packages and bug fixes from upstream project.

Despite of being a regular update release, Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 is coming with a few changes like inclusion of Linux Kernel 4.10 in 64 bit image and Swami Control Panel is installed by default in this release. Current Bodhi Linux users can avail these changes using system's package manager.


Beginning from this release, Bodhi Linux will be dropping 32bit PAE image. However, it will still support 32 bit systems using legacy images. If you have more than 4 GB of memory, it is highly recommended to use 64 bit image instead of 32 bit PAE enabled image.
This is the first release in which we are dropping our 32bit PAE discs. I would like to clarify that we are still supporting 32bit computers, but if you need to install the 32bit version of Bodhi Linux the only version we are preparing is our Legacy ISO image. The Legacy image will work on PAE and non-PAE 32bit hardware alike. If your computer needs a PAE kernel to utilize all of it’s memory it is likely better for you to be using a 64bit operating system anyways. If you do feel the need to use a PAE kernel on a 32bit operating system with Bodhi though, you can always install the Legacy release and then change kernels afterwards.
