Added by Alexander Tratsevskiy almost 2 years ago

We're happy to announce that, since Stage 20120629, Calculate Linux 12 has entered its final phase: the beta testing version is now available!

Main Features

  • A major change: Calculate Utilities 3 are now used to install and set up your system. What does it mean, exactly?
    • Network client-server solutions via SOAP/WSDL are supported.
    • Both console and graphical interfaces are implemented.
    • Multiple installation is supported: that is, you can install CL on several storage media at once, locally as well as remotely.
    • System settings can now be configured either from the command line with cl-setup-boot, cl-setup-locale, cl-setup-network, cl-setup-system, cl-setup-video, or in a graphical environment.
  • Calculate Linux Desktop XFCE has a better appearance:
    • The new Adwaita theme.
    • A bigger menu.
    • Somewhat better response.
