4MLinux 36.0 Distro Introduces NBD Support, Improved exFAT Support, and New Apps

About three months in development, 4MLinux 36.0 comes with up-to-date core components and applications. The distro sticks with the long-term supported Linux 5.4 kernel series, but bumps the version number to Linux 5.4.99 for an extra layer of hardware support and performance to the distro.

Among the new features, 4MLinux 36.0 introduces support for the NBD (network block device) protocol, which can be used to forward a block device from one computer to another, and improves support for the exFAT file system through the addition of the exfatprogs utility and the latest GParted release.
