Black Lab NEXT 2015.9 released

Today we have released Black Lab NEXT 2015.9 which is our second beta for Black Lab Linux 2015.12.  With this release we fixed many of the major issues that dealt with stability.  After the Beta release we will be releasing Black Lab Linux with XFCE and GNOME.

Black Lab NEXT utilizes the XFCE and is 64 bit only. The last Beta in October will be released in 32 bit and 64 bit builds.

Here are a list of fixes that we have introduced in Black Lab NEXT

kernel 3.19
LibreOffice 5
Tracker GUI
Fixed: Wireless dropping in and out
Fixed:  Boot manager installation on UEFI systems
Fixed:  HTML5 Black Screen in Firefox
Fixed:  32 bit libraries will now install automatically when installing WINE and Skype

Thanks to Antoni Norman of the PinguyOS, we have greatly improved UEFI support.

Our graphics guys have been hard at work porting new XFWM themes and hunting down some great wallpapers.

You guys can download Black Lab NEXT from Ibiblio.
