Upcoming Release

We have a new release ready to go on Dec. 26, when we get back from the holidays. This one has several changes:

  • As a few people suggested, I’ve added a Show Desktop button.
  • MPlayer Plugin is now installed for Firefox, which will let you play embedded Quicktime and other media formats.

New Beta (UPDATED)

A new beta is now available, which fixes the update problem with the 12-8 release. You can download it here. If you’ve already installed the 12-8 release, you *may* be able to fix it by entering the following in the terminal before doing the update:

sudo apt-get install -f xpresslinux-settings

Major changes in this version include Firefox as the default browser, additional repositories added, new menu arrangement, and a menu item for Wine’s file manager to easily your Windows drive.

Updates

Okay well we are growing insanely fast after we got on Distro watch roughly 24000 hits on the site already! We have 6000 downloads in about 6 days (about 1000 downloads a day!) okay enough statistics.
***NEWS***Well im getting a beta copy of the pre-release which has the improved menu system, the correct source lists, and fixed labeling issues. Expect screen shots soon.

Also Mike is going to give the site a new look soon, we feel it is getting too cluttered and we are moving to a new organized format (possibly a meebo widget also!).

BTW the Ads by google on the side are there to produce money to start a CD operation to start sending you guys out CD’s of Xpress Linux (free).

Keep coming to the site for info guys

as all ways send all the bugs and or just general email to either [email protected] or [email protected]

Download is right here
Well you folks are as loyal as it gets, in three days we have around 347 downloads! Okay now onto a newer topic, What About The Final Release?

Im so glad you asked, well we have a lot on our plate to finish in roughly 20 days, but so far we know we must, fix all the labeling issues, integrate Flash and Java out of the box, Documentation, main menu configure, and a repository. A lot of that is done already. Currently I am running it for Q&A and havent found too many issues, so its looks now that we will be releasing on December 30th. And if we are lucky maybe before Christmas.

On a second note we also have the full name for the release, Xpress Linux Black Advent. Also we have a small surprise for you all about the next release (sometime after Christmas) , we are making Xpress Linux in Gnome!
