Hi,

Zenwalk 8.0 beta 3 is ready.

Many, many updates between beta 2 and beta 3 including ffmpeg 3, mplayer 1.3, latest Chromium 49, latest Libreoffice 5.1.1 and a few changes at desktop level :
- the switch to pulseaudio mixer
- full polkit desktop integration for privileges elevation management
- some improvements in system tools
- a few desktop tweakings (ie : intelligent hiding of the back panel)
- all audio production tools have been updated (thanks to Emurikku)

And, last but not least : for your security a "diod" firewall service has been added.

ISO is available from zenwalk mirrors :
http://download.zenwalk.org/x86_64/8.0/ ... 0beta3.iso
http://zen-repo.meticul.eu/x86_64/8.0/z ... 0beta3.iso

Have fun

Could you include a bootsplash package as in Zenwalk 7.0, it is very nice (for me of course).

Thank you in advance!

welcome on board jcamachozen.

I will try to add a bootsplash package, ok :)

Maybe not for Zenwalk 8.0, but soon.

I will try to find a way to make it work with no modifications to the Slackware rc scripts and kernel, cause it's the Zenwalk policy for now : vanilla Slackware !!

It's been a time since I last looked to the *splash* projects, I will have to refresh my knowledge about these tools...

Cheers
JP
