Loveland, Colorado -- 27 June 2002 -- Terra Soft Solutions, Inc. officially announces the shipping of Yellow Dog Linux 2.3, the latest update to the company's flagship product.

Yellow Dog Linux 2.3 offers the new KDE 3 desktop which provides a number of high-tech features such as GUI 'translucency'--another leap in the Linux user experience.

YDL 2.3 defaults to the CUPS print system: a simple, web-based configuration tool for high-quality support for a wide-range of printers.

In addition, YDL includes 'apt-get' to replace 'yup!' as a simple, proven, automated update utility that enables the user to keep their installed system current. apt-get provides intelligent, automatic dependency handling to help reduce the hassles involved in package management.

  • kernel 2.4.19
