We are proud to announce the availability of Peppermint-One-01042011 being the latest respin of our original release. This version offers a fully updated system as of January 4, 2011 and comes with some bug fixes as well as some new features.
We’re presently experimenting with release candidate builds of the 2.6.37 kernel in hopes that our next respin can fully support things like Broadcom wireless cards out of the box with no additional drivers installed. We’re also considering moving away from Ubuntu’s kernels altogether in order to offer our own builds based on the venerable Liquorix kernel (which is, in turn, based on the Xen kernel) though this may take a good deal of time to properly implement. The next step after that is to try and work with NVIDIA to offer better graphics support out of the box for the many users of their products in the Linux world.
In unrelated but important news, happy birthday to Kendall Weaver, the co-founder and lead developer of this project. When you see him please buy him a beer or two.
The respin is up now on our download page. Have fun with it. :)
