Debian-Based BlankOn 10.0 Released for Indonesian Linux Users After Three Years

Dubbed “Tambora,” BlankOn Linux 10.0 is here in its final, production-ready state approximately three years after the February 2014 release of BlankOn 9.0. As expected, there are numerous improvements, but the biggest new feature of BlankOn 10.0 is the in-house built Manokwari desktop environment, which is based on the GNOME 3 shell. Manokwari combines the latest GTK+ technologies with an HTML5-based frontend, which will replace GTK+ in future releases of the Linux-based operating system. It brings lots of goodies, including updated search function, new default music player, right-hand sidepanel, a weather widget, and some gorgeous new icons.
