Yes, we’re talking about Vine Linux 6.5, which just received a first Beta development milestone for public beta testing, bringing some major new changes to most of the internal components, including a kernel from the long-term supported Linux 4.4 series, and an updated toolchain consisting of GCC 4.9.3, GNU Binutils 2.26, and Glibc 2.23. The first Beta release of Vine Linux 6.5 includes recent software versions, such as the Mozilla Firefox 47.0 web browser, Mozilla Thunderbird 45.0 email and news client, as well as the LibreOffice 5.1 office suite (only on the DVD edition).
