Debian-Based Elive 2.8.0 Beta Distro Is Out with Performance Improvements, More

Elive 2.8.0 Beta is out, ready for public testers and early adopters who want to get a taste of what’s coming in Elive 3.0 when it will be released, if it’ll happen anytime soon. There’s a bunch of changes included in this development version, but nothing out of the ordinary. For example, there’s now a new Designs Preview feature included, which can only guess that it lets users preview various desktop themes before they can be applied. Moreover, you’ll now see thumbnails for Mobi and EPUB files, and the command-line ebook creator utility was greatly improved.
