On December 29, MEPIS LLC released Beta1 of SimplyMEPIS-64 Version 6.0-4. SimplyMEPIS is a complete and safe desktop computing environment designed to meet the needs of everyday computer users and software professionals alike.

Warren Woodford of MEPIS said "We have tried to make the 64 bit edition of SimplyMEPIS look, feel and function the same as the 32 bit edition. There are only a few differences, for example 32 bit users can choose to download some extra multimedia codecs that are not yet available in 64 bit versions."

The 64 bit version of SimplyMEPIS offer the same advanced hardware autodetection, multimedia integration, and easy to use installer that is included with the 32 bit edition. This release includes Firefox, Flashplayer 9, OpenOffice 2.0.2, the very stable 3.5.3 build of KDE desktop, and a rock solid, security patched 2.6.15 Linux kernel with support for the newest sound chips and Apple hardware.

The ISO image is available for download in the 'testing' subdirectory at the MEPIS Subscriber's Site and at MEPIS public mirrors. Satisfied users are encouraged to make a contribution or make a purchase at the MEPIS store. Your support helps offset the costs of producing SimplyMEPIS 6.0 and funds further development of MEPIS Linux.

The current development cycle at MEPIS is on a fast-track schedule with a targeted release date of approximately January 10, 2007.
