About 64 Studio
64 Studio is developing a collection of native software for digital content creation on x86_64 hardware (that's AMD's 64-bit CPUs and Intel's EM64T chips). It's based on the pure 64 port of Debian GNU/Linux, but with a specialised package selection and lots of other customisations.

Like to see the work in progress? You can now download an iso image for version 0.9.0 beta. This will install Debian with X.org, the Gnome 2.14 desktop, Linux kernel 2.6.17 with realtime preemption patches and a selection of creative applications. To upgrade from 0.9.0 to the latest release, please see the UpgradeScript page. Gnome, Ardour, Hydrogen, Jamin and Qjackctl are running on 64 Studio:

Releases:
2008-06-11 00:00:00.0 64 Studio 2.1 has been released    View
64 Studio 2.1 'A Minha Menina' released! 64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. Version 2.1 is the first update to the second stable release of 64 Studio. It is named after a song by Jorge Ben, recorded by Os Mutantes and covered by The Bees. New versions of applications such as Ardour and Rosegarden are the main reason to upgrade, plus general bug fixes and updates from Etch. It's not meant to be a bleeding edge release; it only contains necessary changes. It's a recommended upgrade for all 64 Studio users, without fear of system breakage.
2007-07-30 00:00:00.0 64 Studio 2.0 is available    View
64 Studio 2.0 is designed to retain compatibility with Debian Etch, to create a long-lived and stable creative desktop. We combine the stability and quality of Etch with a specialised real-time preemption kernel and the latest creative tools demanded by multimedia artists. Our tweaks to Debian include simplified installation and default settings which help get production underway quickly. It's our target that users should be able to get from a blank hard disc to a fully hardware-optimised and usable creative desktop in just half an hour.
2007-07-10 00:00:00.0 64 Studio 2.0 RC1 has been released    View
We are glad to announce that 64 Studio 2.0-rc1 has been released. The code name for this release is shamelessly lifted from the second track on Strictly Personal, the second album by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band. Please note that this is still a testing release, so if you want to stick with the stable version of 64 Studio just use the 1.0 installer. However we think this release is in pretty good shape, and expect to release 2.0 final later this month.
2007-05-23 00:00:00.0 64 Studio 1.4.0 has been released    View
64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. A remix of Debian testing, it comes in both AMD64/Intel64 and 32-bit flavours, to run on nearly all PC hardware. Our latest development version (1.4.0) is the first release candidate for the forthcoming 64 Studio 2.0, which will retain compatibility with Debian Etch. Known bugs in 1.4.0 include: KToon requires rebuilding with an old version of Qt; Inkscape cannot print unless cupsys-bsd is installed....
2007-05-05 00:00:00.0 64 Studio 1.3.0 has been released    View
64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. Our latest development release (1.3.0) is the very first to be based on a stable release of Debian, the recent Etch release. This means that users should be able to add any packages they need from official Debian mirrors, including security updates, without breaking their systems. The forthcoming 64 Studio 2.0 release will retain compatibility with Etch, to create a long-lived and stable creative desktop. New packages in this release include Ardour 2 beta 12 and Xara. The serious bug with sample rate setting for USB audio interfaces in the 1.2.0 release has been fixed.
2007-01-15 00:00:00.0 64Studio 1.1.0 has been released    View
I've prepared a test 1.1.0 release, which is meant to be the first of the testing releases which will lead to the next stable 2.0 release. If you want to stick to stable version please just use the actual 1.0.0.
2006-11-30 00:00:00.0 64Studio 1.0 is available    View
The 64 Studio project produces a distribution of native free software for digital content creation on x86_64 hardware. After eighteen months of development, the project has made its first stable release available for free download. It is named in recognition of the work of Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer at Olympic Studios in London. The distribution is based on the pure 64 port of Debian GNU/Linux, testing branch, but with a specialised package selection and lots of other customisations. The 64 Studio project also produces a 32-bit edition for legacy PC hardware.
2006-11-17 00:00:00.0 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta 2 is available    View
Red Hat is pleased to announce the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta 2. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 has been developed in close cooperation with the Fedora Core 6 and the upstream community. This is the first Red Hat Enterprise Linux release that includes Xen-based open source virtualization technology. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta 2 release contains virtualization support on the x86 and x86_64 architectures as well as a technology preview of Xen for Itanium 2. We are particularly interested in your testing feedback on the virtualization technology.
2006-11-14 00:00:00.0 64Studio 0.9.7 is available now    View
A new ISO with a new 2.6.18 kernel, which includes the latest 2.6.18.2 patches and version rt6 of the realtime-prempt patch. The kernel and the relevant modules are the only differences with respect to 0.9.5, so if you prefer you can just install them from the testing repository. The i386 kernel has been built with HPET disabled, so it should work fine on dual processors too. For AMD64 users, please give it a try and let me know if the new kernel solves the boot issues with 2.6.18.

2006-08-10 00:00:00.0 64Studio 0.9.1 is available now    View
There are a few bug fixes (including the snd-seq one and the i386 one) and furthermore I've managed to reduce the size of the ISO down to 638M by removing a bunch of packages which were available but not installed by default. If everything is OK I'll move the testing branch to stable.
