Trisquel 4.0 LTS “Taranis” strikes!

As our special way to celebrate Software Freedom Day, we are pleased to announce that Trisquel 4.0 LTS, codename “Taranis” -the Celtic god of thunder- is ready for download. It is our second Long Term Support release, and it is a sweet one! It comes in the usual GNOME flavor and with a light LXDE based environment in the shape of the new “Mini” edition. Netisntall images are also available for servers and custom installations. Soon we will also add an international DVD with a big translation set -the standard images contain complete support for English and Spanish- and educational and professional oriented environments as well.

This release is based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and as always it contains just free software, including:

  • Common
    • Linux-libre 2.6.32
    • Xorg 7.5
    • Gnash 0.8.8
  • Standard edition
    • GNOME 2.28
    • OpenOffice.org 3.2
    • Gimp 2.6
    • Mozilla-based web browser 3.6.9
  • Mini edition
    • LXDE 0.5
    • Midori 0.2

As always, this version comes with both 32 and 64 bit support, and since it is an LTS release it will have 3 year support. Current 2.2 LTS and 3.5 users can upgrade to 4.0 using the graphical update-manager tool or by running “sudo do-release-upgrade”.

You can donwload the iso images and help us distribute them using bittorrent. You can also help the Trisquel Project with donations or by buying something from our gift store. We are opening a new one at Zazzle.com today, with new gorgeous products and worldwide shipping!
