One of the programs I use daily is foxpro 2.6, a dos program (via dosemu). Its 20 or 30 years old.  State of the art I am not.  But I have yet to see anything which beats 2.6 for my needs. Nonetheless, Nightflier's comment re the upcoming 7.1 is good news.  Good or bad, it is necessary nowadays to keep up with the Jones.  I fully expect 7.1 to leave the Jones in the dust. And just as fully, I expect to populate it with foxpro 2.6.

w1r3d90d, you're right. Delays in VL7.1 development has left VL7.0 to carry the baton way past where it should have.

Good news is that 7.1 is almost ready. Look for upcoming release announcement.

Latest Java in the repo is 7u7

Debian's latest stable release uses 7u65.

w1r3d90d, what is the source of your 'rest of the world' comment?

I am using Vector Linux 7.0, and am trying to install Flightear 2.4.0-i586-1vl70, and the following error window pops up:

I would expect the repository to be updated as it is with every other major distro.
Latest Java in the repo is 7u7 - While the rest of the world in on 7u71 or even 8u25
Latest Chromium in the repo is 21.0 - From from the version 38.0 everywhere else.
Latest LibreOffice in the repo is 3.6.4 - 4.3.4
The biggest surprise is that OpenOffice is not even available at all.

I'm at a loss here.  I would expect this kind of lack of updated software from a discontinued distro like Ubuntu 8.  But this is with the current LATEST version that that you are distributing right now.
I should not have to install a dev version of an OS just to run the current version of a web browser.

I'm hoping that I'm missing something here and that this is just a big misunderstanding.

For me not being able to seamlessly import my home directory is a major reason for not updating to one of the test images - this is a very important bug that needs to be squashed, I am happy to try this out on my secondary computer to try to get this quashed but can't risk my main system, which means testing is rather limited.  7.0 is looking very old now and increasingly there are issues with the repository

I have been looking into a lot of operating systems and Vector Linux is still near the top of my list.  I have mostly been using a few other mainstream distributions for developing HTML and Ruby on Rails applications.  There seems to be a lot of new packages and libraries available and I have been trying to learn them quickly because they are multiplying like rabbits.  Anyway,  just wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks for keeping this distribution alive.

Sorry, I just found out that it isn't compatible with the latest version of flash player.
