EasyOS version 2.4 released - NOT

August 28, 2020 — BarryK

Oh cr*p, we have found two show-stopper bugs in 2.4. The release is withdrawn. Hopefully in a couple of days I will have fixed the bugs and will re-upload. Sorry about that!

Bugs fixed! Version 2.4.1 is released: 

Another exciting release! The last release announced at Distrowatch was 2.3, on May 30, 2020. Since then, as usual, there has been a hectic pace of development. Here is an announcement blurb, with highlights since 2.3:

EasyOS 2.4 has significant and exciting new features since version 2.3. This includes enhancements to "lockdown in RAM" as an alternative security strategy to containers, tools and strategies for debugging bootup in the initrd, automatic version update via an "update" icon on the desktop, and choice of settings to retain when erase the session.  There are many package changes, including built from Debian 10.5 DEBs and kernel bump to 5.4.59. Updated applications include SeaMonkey, Pupradio, fftag, ffplay-gtk, Pmcputemp and EasyDD. New apps include MATE Calc and iotop. Many infrastructure improvements and fixes -- too many to list, see the release notes.
