A Release Candidate for Wolvix Media Edition 1.0.4 is now out. This will hopefully be the first and only release candidate before the final release.

About Wolvix
Changes since 1.0.4 beta2: fixed the missing symlinks for VLC and MPlayer codecs which caused the programs to refuse loading for some people; recompiled VLC with updated codecs - sound is now working on MOV files; replaced wvstreams and wvdial packages - this will hopefully fix the problems with Gnome PPP. Updated: gmusicbrowser, gtkpod, GParted, ardour, Avidemux....

2007-08-04 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.1.0 has been released    View
I'm pleased to announce the final release of Wolvix Cub and Wolvix Hunter version 1.1.0. This release marks a turning point in the Wolvix development as it's not longer a SLAX remaster, but now based on the stable Slackware releases and the Linux-Live scripts. New features in Wolvix 1.1.0 are: LZMA compressed modules, SMP support, NTFS write support, auto mounting through HAL, Xfce 4.4.1, and as always a full range of applications for office, graphics, multimedia and development use. Though this release is based on Slackware 11.0 it comes with the 2.6.21.5 kernel and many other package upgrades.
2007-07-13 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.1.0 RC2 has been released    View
This release should be pretty stable and solid, but I want to give it one more round of testing before I call it final. All reported bugs from RC1 have been addressed, such as the problem with booting from USB flash drives. GTK+2 has been upgraded to version 2.10.13 to get rid of the annoying 'flicker bug' in Fluxbox. The NTFS problem I introduced when trying to solve the USB boot issue, has also been corrected. There are some minor changes in the packages selection...
2007-06-26 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.1.0 RC1 is available    View
The first release candidate of Wolvix 1.1.0 is ready for download. There has been a change of plans regarding the various Wolvix editions. In order to reduce the workload and to be able to release in a timely fashion I've decided to only create Cub and Hunter editions, so there will be no Desktop or Media editions like previously announced. Wolvix Hunter comes with a good deal of both Office and Multimedia apps though, such as OpenOffice.org, GNUCash, VLC, dvd::rip and more. The Wolvix repository contains additional applications and games which are not included on the ISO files.
2007-04-17 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.1.0 Beta is available now    View
The beta version of Wolvix 1.1.0 'Cub' and 'Desktop' editions are finally ready. This release holds a lot of changes over the alphas. We have moved over to the latest version of the Linux-Live scripts (6.0.7) and the kernel has been updated to version 2.6.20.3. The new scripts features support for LZMA compressed modules, which reduce the size of the modules drastically, so there are a lot more packages included in the beta. Cub is almost as feature rich as the 1.0.5 'Hunter' edition. It now features Gnumeric, Kino, OGMRip and other new applications not found in the alpha. The 'Desktop' edition features everything found in 'Cub' plus lots of additional applications.
2006-10-25 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.0.5 has been released now    View
After nearly five months of development, Wolvix 1.0.5 is finally ready for release. Wolvix 1.0.5 comes in two editions: 'Wolvix Cub' and 'Wolvix Hunter'. Cub is a small edition of Wolvix; it's designed to fit on 256MB USB Flash drives and to serve as a base for building your own custom Wolvix distribution. Hunter is the large 'standard' edition of Wolvix; it's designed to fit on 512MB USB Flash drives and use Wolvix Cub as its base. It includes more applications, a lot of games, and larger packages like Samba, Java and libraries for printer support. New in the Wolvix 1.0.5 series is the Wolvix Control Panel (WCP) which is a suite of administration utilities.
2006-09-05 00:00:00.0 Wolvix 1.0.5 Beta "Cub" is available now    View
Wolvix Cub is a smaller version of Wolvix, designed to fit on 256MB USB removable media and it will serve as the base for the larger 'standard' 512MB Wolvix edition. Wolvix Cub comes with both Fluxbox and XFce, and includes a carefully selected group of development, graphics, multimedia and desktop applications. This release also features the Wolvix Control Panel (WCP) developed by Oithona.
2006-06-27 00:00:00.0 Wolvix Cub 1.0.5 Alpha has been released now    View
I've just uploaded the Wolvix Cub 1.0.5 Alpha ISO to the FTP server. If you are interested in helping me test it, download the ISO and give it a spin. Wolvix Cub is a smaller version of Wolvix which should fit on a 256MB USB stick. The Cub edition will serve as the base for the 'full' Wolvix 1.0.5 which I'll start building next. This is an ALPHA release and still has some rough edges, it's only intended for testing.
