Neptune 4.2 Release
"It's all about you" even better
We are proud to announce the release of Neptune 4.2. This service release comes with a brand new kernel 3.16.3 (+bfq I/O Scheduler) which includes many driver updates and improvements in power saving functions. Our improved installer now offers you to install on uefi capable PCs and brings in a new option which allows you to disable sudo for your user during installation.
Several security, bugfixes and updates were merged into this release. The bash "shellshock" vulnerability is fixed, Chromium to version 37, LibreOffice to version 4.3.2, Kdenlive to version 0.9.10 and Wireshark to 1.12.
For the first time Neptune also ships the btrfs snapshotting tool snapper which can create hourly snapshots of the filesystem. It allows you to view changes in files and to restore files, folders or the whole filesystem. More info about snapper here

If you have Neptune 4.1 already installed you can upgrade easily with an update in the software center. If you encounter problems please use the terminal command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Notes: UEFI support will only work with GPT partition scheme and a Fat32 uefi boot partition (with boot flag) without secure boot enabled. Known issues: The live system might hang on shutdown/reboot when running from LiveDVD
