A Present for You: MMBD-1.5
« on: December 25, 2008, 08:21:21 am »

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas! I have been hard at work on a new version of the Multimedia Bonus Disc (MMBD) for Vector Linux 5.9 called 1.5 RC1. This release brings some new programs as well as many updated ones including Gimp 2.6.3, Blender 2.48a, Hugin 0.7.0, and many others. This is a release candidate and I have only found a few minor issues. Save one or two apps which do not work, everything seems ready for production use and the large number of updated packages brings new features to your multimedia workstation. The complete changelog from version 1.0 is listed below. Please post any bugs you might find in this thread. Enjoy, and have a wonderful Christmas!

Version 1.5 RC1 is available for download and testing from here:

Most definitely! As soon as I work out a few minor things in this one (almost done with that), I'll release 1.5 for VL 5.9. Then, it should be relatively painless to rebuild it all on 6.0 and it'll be called MMBD-2.0. I don't know how long that will take to port it to VL6, but it'll probably be after the final VL version is released. I just wanted to keep VL5.9 users up-to-date!
