Kwort 4.2 is out

As the title says Kwort 4.2 is out there in the wild :-)
This new version is fast, stable, and simple as always and a little bit smaller. Everything has been built from scratch in a clean way from a new toolchain to every Xorg package.
Most significant technical aspects are:

  • Linux kernel 3.19.2.
  • Chromium 41.0.2272.76.
  • As usual our system remains light and clean as Kwort users like it.
  • New and improved GUI aspect.

People and projects I would like to thank:

  • Our infrastructure providers, the people from PGHosting and Ricardo Brisighelli for the package mirror and development environment in the UNR (this is a completely new server!).
  • As usual, a big thanks to the CRUX people for developing it, as it is the system Kwort is based on; even though Kwort 4.2 isn't based on a CRUX release, their ports system where a key component to build this release.
  • The eudev folks for supporting and approving our patch to make /run to be configurable (Kwort uses /var/run).
  • And of course, the people who develop every project Kwort makes use of. BIG THANK YOU.
