Is Salix still under active development?

Post by sglnx » 5. Jun 2013, 11:38

Been using Xfce 13.37 for a while. Was wondering if development is still ongoing at Salix. There is no new release of other editions after Xfce 14.0 gives an impression that Salix is no more in active development.

Cheers.

I know it is........
I can't answer for the Team but....
They have released Salix 14 Xfce, OpenBox and the KDE versions all on Sourceforge.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/salix/files/14.0/
Some of those are Beta. There is also a New LiveCD
Basically, moving to version 14 is an ongoing project but not ready for the Main Downloads Page.

Remember these people have Day Jobs. ;)
Debian ( Stretch 9, Sid ) Salix OpenBox 14.1, Gentoo, Calculate

Thanks pal.

Am grateful to people who contributed to the development of free software without expecting anything in return.

Cheers.

I just noticed a new 64-bit iso on sourceforge (in beta, downloading it right now) so it's nice to see some new development. Besides, slackware 14.1 is hopefully on its way soon, and then a new release of salix. :geek:

Hi
Any news about Mate 14? Is it dormant?
Thanks, regards.

It will be ready when it's ready.

Meanwhile you can certainly install a full MATE desktop with:

Code: Select all

slapt-get --install-set mate
