Elive 3.0 Is One Step Closer to Reality as Latest Beta Introduces Many Goodies

Elive 2.9.12 Beta is here almost two months after the previous beta (versioned 2.9.8), and it looks like it’s a big one, adding an extra layer of performance improvements to the desktop and window effects with up to 194%, as well as to video playback, which is now smoother than on previous betas. Elive’s graphical installer, yes the one you don’t have to pay to use it anymore, has been refactored in this new beta release to include a validator of characters for usernames, passwords, and hostnames, make the entire installation process a lot easier than before, and also fix numerous bugs, especially for the built-in browser.
