A Preview of 4MLinux 25.0 STABLE release
As always, a new major release comes with some new features: better handling of CA certificates (no need to accept them manually), full support for Zstandard data compression algorithm (4MLinux Backup Scripts), login screen can now be disabled (it's a response to user requests), GIMP 2.10 with full support for scanners and digital cameras, Python3 with Meson and Ninja (this is now, de facto,  the main build system in GNOME/GTK+ ecosystem).

The default media player in 4MLinux is now mpv (with GNOME MPV). Other players (MPlayer, SMPlayer, xine and VLC) are available as downloadable extensions. Good news for modern computers: all these applications are now able to make use of hardware video acceleration (via VA-API and VDPAU). Good news for old computers: MPlayer, xine and VLC can play videos without X Window System (use Midnight Commander to select files to play).
