Based on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, the first and most probably the last Release Candidate (RC) snapshot of the upcoming Black Lab Linux 8.0 distribution is now here, available for free, for early adopters and those who want to help the developers polish the final release of the OS. If you’re wondering what’s new in the Black Lab Linux 8.0 RC1 release, we can tell you right now that it uses the Linux 4.4.0-42 kernel from the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS release, offers support for booting the distro on UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) machines, as well as full support for installing Snap packages.
