Brace yourself summerupdates are here
Wheezy-Backports enabled by default with high priority
This month Neptune has some interesting new summer updates. Mainly we now enabled the wheezy-backports software source with a higher priority. This leads to a bunch of new updates for libraries and applications.
To activate this update just update your packages normally via the software management tool apper. This will update the neptune-sourceslist package. After that it should enable all the updates on wheezy-backports for you.
We also updated KDEnlive and added the video stabilizer tool vid.stab. This allows stabilizing shaky video with a simple mouse click and a few settings.
Besides that we also offer a new LTS Kernel 3.18.16 for testing. This comes with the usual aufs3 and bfq i/o scheduler patches to enable a quick responsive desktop experience.
Kernel 3.18.16 is planned to be the default kernel for the upcoming Neptune (4.4) release.
