Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 Released

Today I am pleased to announce the release of Bodhi Linux 4.2.0. This is a normal update release and it comes four months after the release of Bodhi 4.1.0. Existing users do not need to reinstall as the primary goal of this update release is to simply keep the current ISO image up to date. That being said this release does bring a few changes with it. The 64bit releases utilize the 4.10 kernel by default and the Swami Control panel is now installed by default in all the releases.

This is the first release in which we are dropping our 32bit PAE discs. I would like to clarify that we are still supporting 32bit computers, but if you need to install the 32bit version of Bodhi Linux the only version we are preparing is our Legacy ISO image. The Legacy image will work on PAE and non-PAE 32bit hardware alike. If your computer needs a PAE kernel to utilize all of it’s memory it is likely better for you to be using a 64bit operating system anyways. If you do feel the need to use a PAE kernel on a 32bit operating system with Bodhi though, you can always install the Legacy release and then change kernels afterwards.

Existing Bodhi users will already have the updates Bodhi 4.2.0 brings with it assuming they have been running their system updater. Users who want to change kernels or install Swami can do so using their system’s package manager.

Finally some download links:

If you have spare bandwidth please consider seeding the torrent files for awhile. Thank you to everyone in the community who contributes to Bodhi in various ways. Without all of you these releases would not be possible.
