ROSA Desktop Fresh R7 KDE 4 is out today, also with Plasma 5

Post by NicCo »

Hi all!

ROSA Desktop Fresh R7 KDE 4 is out today.
It's 2014.1-based release like R6 was.

Release notes:
http://wiki.rosalab.ru/en/index.php/ROS ... ease_Notes

More info (Errata etc):
http://wiki.rosalab.ru/en/index.php/ROS ... p_Fresh_R7


P.S. Now we also have Plasma 5 R7 ISOs in public download:
http://mirror.rosalab.ru/rosa/rosa2014. ... .Fresh.R7/

These ISOs are still not as stable and polished as KDE 4 ISOs. Some
core Rosa features are still missing (for example, SimpleWelcome). But
many people already use ROSA with Plasma 5 desktop. So it should be
possible to download working and tested Plasma 5 ISOs instead of
trying various ABF ISO builds.

I have noticed that the installer has been improved a lot under the hood:
now the EFI/UEFI is working fine even with the boot protection enabled...

Everything related with the partitioning and GPT UEFI is easy to configure,
everything is smooth and works as expected, none bad surprises,

ROSA R7 is the most UEFI compliant distro I have tried until now!


a nice review, here
