VL64-7.0-STD BETA 2 READY FOR TESTING
« on: December 12, 2011, 09:48:01 am »
The Vector development crew is proud to announce  the BETA 2 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 3.1.5, 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.
We have done our best at squashing all the bugs reported so far, if we missed any please let us know.

You can download the VLocity 7.0 BETA2 iso from our official servers here:
