The Vector development crew is proud to announce after a long alpha testing phase we are ready to begin the beta testing cycle of VectorLinux 7.0. This release is a major update from VectorLinux 6 so please adjust your package update sources in gslapt to use VectorLinux 7 or a lot of breakage will occur. That being said here is a quick rundown: The kernel is version 2.6.37, glibc is 2.12.2 and everything else is up to date with Slackware-current. We have the new xfce-4.8.0 with 4.8.1 patches in place along with cairo-dock, latest abiword, gnumeric, scribus, inkscape, shotwell and a vast array of other programs in all categories at their latest stable versions. We have tried to squash the major bugs that occurred during the alpha cycle so we hope its perfect this time.........
