EasyOS Kirkstone-series version 5.4.7 released

July 13, 2023 — BarryK

Version 5.4.6 was released on July 6, 2023:

Newcomers are recommended to read the 5.4 announcement:


Very interesting improvements since 5.4.6, see 5.4.7 release notes:

Includes the addition of not-installed apps in EasyApps and in the menu:

...identified by having an orange-ball icon. Selecting these, they will be offered to install.

In the previous post, I mentioned KeePassXC password manager crashing with "illegal instruction" when tested on my Compaq Presario PC. The fix is to use v3.1 encryption instead of v4 -- I think that this was already reported in the forum.

So, 5.4.7 has the pre-created KeePassXC database now v3.1. One thing to remember: the pre-created database requires password "woofwoof" to open.

There are various other improvements that didn't get posted about in the blog. For example, thanks to madanadam for more Turkish translations.

Feedback is welcome at the forum:

Have fun!
