About Kate OS

The most important Kate OS features are high efficiency, safety, reliability and low system requirements. Kate OS provides full support for generally used multimedia. Kate OS is a perfect combination of Linux power and utility. The complexity of installed software makes using the system comfortable, immediately after the installation process.

2007-04-21 00:00:00.0 KateOS 3.6 Beta has been released    View
KateOS 3.6 beta is out! It is enough to look at the version number to see that we have made quite a progress since the last release. We have improved the boot scripts, the package scripts and the way the packages are internationalized.
2006-12-22 00:00:00.0 Kate OS 3.2 is available    View
KateOS 3.2 is the third edition of the III series. It brings, as usual, many fixes, updates, and novelties the community has been waiting for. It includes a new graphical package management tool, KatePKG, which allows for easy and intuitive installation, removal, and updating of packages. KatePKG can handle any number of repositories, including user-created ones on the local drive. It is the first KateOS graphical package manager but not the last one. Katepkg has been written in PHP using the PHP-GTK2 library. We have chosen this language due to its maturity and the usefulness of PHP-GTK2. Thanks to it we have managed to create a fully functional package manager in a relatively short time. We hope that it will help many people rediscover the power of PHP 5 and PHP-GTK2.
2006-10-09 00:00:00.0 Kate OS 3.1 has been released now    View
Kate OS 3.1 is the second edition of the III series. It fixes many bugs, but also introduces many important changes. Kate OS 3.1 is the first Kate to use the GTK+ 2.10.x library. This is a very substantial change for the entire system, which will let us deliver various new applications. Also, the GNOME desktop environment has been updated to its newest 2.16.0 version. This is the first edition of GNOME especially adjusted to Kate OS. Apart from those, Kate OS 3.1 also features the 2.6.17.13 kernel, XFce 4.4rc1 and numerous updates. An interesting novelty is Update-notifier, a task bar applet designed for Kate OS which automatically checks for available updates, and allows for easy package selection and update.
2006-09-05 00:00:00.0 Kate OS 3.0 LIVE has been released now    View
Kate OS 3.0 LIVE is the newest version of our distribution which boots directly from the CD. It is a great demonstration of our system's possibilities. It can also come very handy when trying to rescue another system. The CD contains 2GB of compressed data, including the XFce environment with multimedia and office applications. Also available are system and partition rescue tools, GParted (partitioning tool) and ClamAV, an antivirus scanner. All these tools are priceless during a data rescue session after a system crash.
2006-07-22 00:00:00.0 Kate OS 3.0 Beta 1 has been rleased now    View
Today the beta version of Kate OS 3.0 was publicly released. It contains a completely rewritten TGZex package management system, which will certainly satisfy every user of our distribution. Inside the Kate OS project, three subprojects have been created - libsmarttools (basic classes/functions used in updateos2 ), libupdateos (provides simple API for remote operations on TGZex packages), and updateos2 (CLI interface for libupdateos).
