Release Notes - CrunchBang Linux 8.10.01

The final build of CrunchBang Linux 8.10.01 is now available. This is the third release of the distribution and as the version number suggests, it is based on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex. As with previous releases, 8.10.01 has been built from scratch using the Ubuntu MinimalCD.

What's new?

As well as being based on the latest version Ubuntu, this release sees a number of changes, including, but not limited to:

  • A new darker theme, see screenshots.
  • Tablaunch has been removed, finally.
  • dmenu has been included, by popular demand. It is bound to Alt+F3.
  • Some additional default shortcut keys added, including main menu, logout and dmenu.
  • replaced by Abiword and Gnumeric.
  • pypanal replaced by lxpanel.
  • AcidRip removed.
  • Twitux replaced by Gwibber.
  • Mirage replaced by GPicView.
