Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 Released

Hot on the heels of the Moksha 0.2.1 desktop release I am happy to announce the stable release of Bodhi 4.0.0. I would like to start by extending a giant thank you to all of the Bodhi Team Members who made the release possible. Stefan, Sef, Charles, Ylee, Okra, Tristram, and all our users taking the time to report issues on the forums – this release would not have happened without all of your help. For those who are more interested in download links than the details here you go:

If you can spare the bandwidth please seed the torrent files for as long as possible!

The highlights of this release coming from our previous stable release, Bodhi Linux 3.2.1, are:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.1 Core
  • Moksha 0.2.1 Desktop
  • Linux 4.4 Kernel
  • EFL 1.18.1
  • New / Updated Moksha Modules

Ultimately our end users should be pleased to see the same stable operating system they have grown accustomed to in the past years, with newer application versions the updated Ubuntu LTS brings with it. I would like to take this time to remind users that we do not support a direct upgrade path from 3.2.1 to 4.0.0. You will need to reinstall your operating system to have Bodhi Linux 4.0.0. I would also like to mention that there is no rush for users to upgrade their working 3.2.1 systems. Bodhi 3 will be supported until April 2019. Existing 4.0.0 pre-release users can upgrade to this stable release by simply running the updates via their package manager.

If you encounter any issues with your install please open a support request in the 4.0.0 section of our user forums.

If you told me when I started Bodhi Linux almost six years ago that I would still be working on Bodhi a wife, two kids, a degree, and dozen jobs later I am not sure I would have believed you. I am thankful not only for the other folks who have come and gone contributing to Bodhi over the years, but also for the community that continually amazes me with their generosity. Our operating costs are always covered which gives me more time to worry about crushing bugs and writing code.

If you enjoy Bodhi Linux please consider making a donation or becoming a member. If you are interested in contributing on other ways – please reach out as well. We are always looking for help with art, coding, and documentation.

Edit: needs to manually approve our torrents to use their tracker, so they will appear as “unregistered” in your torrent client until that happens.
