Netrunner Desktop 17.03 released

The Netrunner Team is happy to announce the release of Netrunner Desktop 17.03 – 64bit ISO.

Netrunner 17.03 “Cyclotron” ships with an upgraded stack of KDE Software plus its usual selection of applications like Libreoffice, KDEnlive, Gimp, Audacious, Steam, Skype, Transmission, Virtualbox, Krita, Inkscape and many more.

Here are some versions of what is shipped in Netrunner Desktop 17.03:

  • Linux Kernel 4.9.0-1
  • Plasma 5.9.3
  • Frameworks 5.31
  • Qt 5.7.1
  • KDE Applications 16.12.2
  • Firefox 52~ESR
  • Thundebird 45

Some new, some re-cycled

With Cyclotron, we took the chance and switched some parts in while replacing others:

Firefox-Plasma 52.0.1 has been updated to the Firefox ESR release channel, meaning it will keep receiving security fixes, but stay stable as to not break kmozillahelper as easily.

We also introduce our new default videoplayer mpv, which features a simplified black theme for its smplayer frontend.

We further included a new volume mixer applet and added Grub customizer back in.

To round things up, we included an extra pack of fresh wallpapers.

You can find the 64-bit ISO in the download section and ask for help or report any issues in our Forums section.
