EasyOS version 0.9.9 released

November 24, 2018 — BarryK

Seems to be working OK (touch wood), so decided to release 0.9.9. Version 0.9.8 was released o November 14, and it is a good idea to look through the announcement:

Version 0.9.9 can be downloaded courtesy of Ibiblio:

There are various experiments underway. For example, 'iwd' is a replacement for 'wpa_supplicant', however, it is not working, so in 0.9.9 wpa_supplicant is used, though the iwd package is there for further experiments.

The kernel is 4.14.81, which apparently has a patch that slows down the kernel significantly. That patch has been reverted in next release, so I will be upgrading the kernel asap.

Between 0.9.8 and 0.9.9 there has mostly been under-the-hood changes, that could have introduced new bugs. Hopefully not. For the user, a highlight is SFSget (see top of desktop) is significantly enhanced. 

Aargh, a bug snuck through! It is easy to fix, please read this:

...please do this before using "sfsget'.
