4MLinux 23 Slated for Release in November 2017, to Be Supported Until July 2018

The 4MLinux 23.0 series entered development two weeks ago, when Zbigniew Konojacki announced the release of the 4MLinux 23.0 Beta Core edition, a barebone version which is the base of all the GNU/Linux distributions that are released under the 4MLinux umbrella. And now, 4MLinux 23.0, the main distro, gets a Beta too and switches to use GNU C Library 2.25 as default. We also know that 4MLinux 23.0 Beta remains powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.9 kernel series, and ships with up-to-date components that you can study here. All packages included in this development release are compiled with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 6.2.0 compiler, and, as expected, they’re designed to be compatible with the i686 (32-bit) hardware architecture.
