Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 Alpha released for testers

Mr Jeff Hoogland of Bodhi Linux has announced availability of Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 Alpha, first development release of upcoming stable Bodhi Linux 4.0.0. The team expects that, if everything goes well a stable image can be made available by September of this year.

Being a development release at early stage of it's development, Bodhi Linux team clearly mention that, this release is not meant for people who are planning to write a review or users who don't have purpose of testing distribution to find issues. The primary goal of this development release is to integrate Moksha Desktop with Ubuntu 16.04 and hunt for issues.

Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 Alpha is only available for 64 bit architecture, however the team promises that final release will be available both in 32 bit and 64 bit varieties and also a PAE variation will be available. May be, the next development release will be available in other variations.

Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well.

This release is also only coming in 64bit flavoring. Hopefully with the beta release early next month I will have these other variations put together, but for now just 64bit is included with this alpha release. The primary purpose of this release is to start testing the Moksha desktop on the new Ubuntu 16.04 base to ensure there are not any unforeseen issues with this.
