Salix 13.1.1 has been released!

Hi everyone! It's time for a new Salix release! Here is Salix 13.1.1, using the XFCE desktop, available both in 32-bit and 64-bit flavours.

Here is a list of changes since the previous release in the 13.1 branch:
* Lilosetup, a new graphical tool that can be used for setting up the Lilo bootloader has been added.
* New graphical system administration tools have been added; a tool to manage ALSA sound cards, one to manage system hostnames and a small tool to rebuild the system icon cache in XFCE. All salix system tools are now available in a "basic" installation too.
* The installation CDs can now be used as a local repository with slapt-get/gslapt, complete with dependency support. Detailed instructions on how to do that can be found in the README file in the iso images. This will help users with no internet access that are performing "core" or "basic" mode installations and would like an easy way to install extra software found in a "full" mode installation.
* The default start page in Firefox has been changed to: http://www.salixos.org/start
* An older version of the intel driver (2.9.1) is included in the installation media in the salix/extra directory. This is not installed by default but might be of use with some intel graphics cards. You can read the README.intel file in the iso images for more details.
* New packages included in a "full" mode installation: pyxdg, notify-python, libnl, net-snmp.
* All security fixes and package upgrades since the previous release have been included.
* Flash has been removed from the 64-bit release. Adobe has not updated their 64-bit flash plugin for the latest version and the previous version is a security hole. You can read more about the issue here: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=921

Downloads are available from sourceforge as well as torrents.

Depends what your current installed version is.
If your current installed version is from the 13.1 *series*, no need to change anything.

Repository versions do not change in minor version maintenance updates.

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Hello. I installed 13.1 on my Netbook minutes before this announcement hit Distrowatch. I did an upgrade via gslapt and it looks like all went well. The only exception is that lilosetup was not installed. A quick search of gslapt confirmed this. Other gui admin tools were installed.

Thank you for providing this nice update.

Am using normally your LIveCD 13.1-test but will install now 13.1.1. on a disk which contains grub. What would be the best grub entry for this 13.1.1.

Thank you.

Congratulations!
Most distros have red triangles beside their names in distrowatch. Salix has a green one. This is a good sign. Keep up the good work.
The ability to use the cd as a repository is an impressive addition.

Slackware installation DVD/CD, too?
