Black Lab Linux 4.1.9 KDE released

Today we are pleased to announce Black Lab Linux 4.1.9.  This release showcases our efforts with the KDE desktop.

While KDE was our secondary desktop and only had an occasional focused release, KDE will have a refocus.  We will have a KDE and XFCE based release for every major and incremental release.  Our optimized KDE will become the default desktop for Black Lab Enterprise Linux and Black Lab Enterprise Server.

So with those announcements, lets get to this specific release.   Based on a heavily modified Kubuntu base system we offer the best the KDE community has to offer.  With this release we focus on optimizing KDE so that it runs on the same class of hardware as our XFCE release.  We also work on providing the same tools as our XFCE release so we have a mix of QT and GTK based apps.  with this release we have also updated the kernel and contains all the bug fixes and driver database as our main release.

This release has the following features

  • Customized KDE 4.11.3 
  • Muon Software Center and Muon Package Installer
  • Gimp
  • Chromium Browser 31
  • Steam Client
  • Thunderbird e-mail client
  • Lightning Extension
  • Digikam
  • Krusader
  • Dropbox
  • Libreoffice
  • VLC 
  • JuK
These and many more enhancements and features we have included in this release.

You can download this release from our Sourceforge page
