VL64-7.0-STD BETA 1 READY FOR TESTING
« on: October 17, 2011, 03:02:08 pm »
The Vector development crew is proud to announce the first BETA release of VLocity Linux 7.0.
VLocity Linux is 64bit Vector Linux.

We have done our best to reproduce VectorLinux in 64bit and we are really close to pulling it off. The kernel is version 3.0.4, glibc is 2.13  and everything else is up to date with Slackware64-13.37. We have the new xfce-4.8.1 with glx-dock (previously cairo-dock), latest abiword, gnumeric, inkscape, shotwell and a vast array of other programs in all categories at their latest stable versions..

You can download the VLocity 7.0 BETA1 iso from our official servers here:

Just installed this in a VM.  First impressions are promising. I like the theme.  Nice work.  Just like in the VL 32b 7.0 releases, I dislike the panel on top and cairo-dock, but after a few clicks, it's rock and rolling.

Thanks.
