JBLinux 2.2 has now been released! The 2.1 release never made it
to the public as some minor bugs were discovered just before the
planned release. New in this release are lots of updates for both
workstations and servers. Support for the jfs filesystem has been
included in the installer - which means that currently ext2, jfs,
reiserfs and xfs are supported for installation. Software RAID
support has also been included in the installer, supporting Linear
RAID, RAID-0, RAID-1, RAID-4 and RAID-5.
Lots of bugfixes on the installer have also been made, most
noticably a serious bug in the 2.0 installer has been fixed, which
resulted in no CDROMs being found on some hardware configurations.
The 2.2 release comes with kernel 2.4.7, XFree86 4.1.0, the latest
Ximian GNOME, KDE 2.1.1 (updated packages for KDE 2.2 will be
released as soon as it's ready), Mozilla 0.9.3, Galeon 0.12pre1,
the latest Wine release, Evolution 0.12, Abiword 0.9, and lots of
The distribution now comes on two CD-ROMs, where the first one
is the installation CD-ROM and second is called Contrib &
Extras, where useful additional software has been put, software
that not necessarily everyone needs - like drivers for nVidia and
3dfx cards, CUPS, additional fonts, KDE i18n language packages,
Mozilla plugins (java and flash), Netscape 4.x, etc. For complete
list of changes or to download, please see the web site.
