Yesterday we released Korora 19.1 which is a 3 month update to the original 19 release. Anyone already running Korora doesn’t need this, however if you are planning do any more installs we highly recommend downloading this new release as it includes all updates, a few tweaks and fixes a number of bugs. This release also includes versions of the MATE and Cinnamon desktops which we’ve created to gauge community interest.
The 19.1 release features:
- All updates at time of release, including; KDE 4.11, kernel 3.11.2 and Firefox 24
- Introduces support for MATE and Cinnamon desktops
- Replaces rawtherapee raw image editor with darktable
- Includes lzma compression, fonts-tweak-tool and gnome-documents
- Fixes a systemd bug where the installer sometimes won’t start
MATE is a fork of GNOME 2, so if you’re pining for the old days and GNOME 3 isn’t your cup of tea, this may be for you.
Cinnamon is a fork of GNOME Shell and implements a more traditional layout with modern technology on top of GNOME 3.
Thank you to our community members who have helped to make this release possible.
After reviewing Fedora 19, J.A. Watson does a hands on with Korora 19.
Once installed, Korora has worked flawlessly for me. Every system, every bit of hardware, every driver — they have all worked straight out of the box. If you’re not into reading release announcements and such to find out what the differences [between Fedora and Korora] are, just install it and then browse around in the menus a bit. It includes a truly impressive array of pre-installed software, in every category. If you make the effort to try it, you are likely to love it.
Well, the cat’s out of the bag! Korora 19 (Bruce) is now available for download, which for the first time ever coincides with the same release of Fedora
See the official Korora Release announcement for more details.
NOTE: Kororaa Linux has changed to the Korora Project and moved to a new website at http://kororaproject.org.
The Korora Project is pleased to announce the first beta release of version 18 (codename “Flo”) which is now available for download.
Derived from Fedora 181 stable, this release comes with the usual Korora extras out of the box, but now also includes:
- Adobe Flash plugin
- Experimental support for Valve’s Steam client
- unburden-home-dir, which moves cache files (like in Firefox profiles) onto RAMFS at login
- undistract-me, which pops up a GUI notification when a terminal command has completed
It is now possible to upgrade from Kororaa 17 to Korora 18, thanks to Fedora’s FedUp tool.
This is a beta and we’d love to hear about your experience so that we can make it better! Please send us feedback in the forums or log a bug report if you have any issues. Of course you can find us on social media like Identi.ca, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook.
