This announcement is also available in Italian, Spanish and Taiwanese Mandarin.
We are excited to announce the first Chakra release of 2017, codenamed Goedel, to honor the logician, mathematician and philosopher Kurt Goedel.
The 2017.03 release introduces two noteworthy changes:
- The installer, Calamares, has been updated to version 126.96.36.199. As a result, users are now able to install Chakra on btrfs and LUKS encrypted partitions. Calamares has received lots of partitioning enhancements and bug fixes since our previous ISO release and the installation process should be smoother than ever.
- Our homegrown Heritage theme for Plasma got a refreshing facelift that we hope you will enjoy.
This release also offers an updated snapshot of packages already available in our repositories:
We would like to remind you that:
- Chakra implements a half-rolling release model for the repositories, where all applications and KDE software fully roll. So expect newer versions of many of the above packages on your first update after installation.
- Current Chakra users do not need to perform a new installation, updating your current installation will always provide you with all the latest versions of all our packages.
We take this opportunity to thank everyone that has contributed to the Goedel release, we greatly appreciate all your feedback and support in making Chakra a better and more reliable distribution! This testing cycle was one of the most extensive in Chakra's history and took more than 4 months. However, some bugs are expected due to the many changes and new features introduced, so please take the time to report them on our issue tracker.
