The Netrunner Team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Netrunner Desktop 17.01 – 64bit ISO.
Note: We have updated the current ISO to 17.01.1 to include some previously missing firmware drivers for certain wireless cards from the nonfree section of Debian.
Netrunner Desktop 17.01 “Baryon” has jumped from Debian Jessie to snapshot “20161211” of the upcoming Debian Stretch.
This means the system can be kept on a certain version stack, while it is also easy to enable the corresponding repositories for continously tested updates.
Netrunner Desktop adds the usual selection of software applications like KDEnlive, Gimp, VLC, Libreoffice, Audacious, Steam, Skype, Transmission, Virtualbox, Krita, Inkscape and many more.
Here is an overview of what’s new in Netrunner Desktop 17.01:
- Debian Stretch – Testing Snapshot “20161211”
- Linux Kernel 4.8.0-2
- Plasma 5.8.2
- Frameworks 5.27
