Neptune 7.5 "Ada" released
We are proud to announce the release of Neptune 7.5 ("Ada") the first service release of the Neptune 7 series.
This version comes with the updates provided by Debian 11.4 ("Bullseye") that offer the latest and greatest in terms of security.
We updated the Linux Kernel to version 5.18 to provide better support for modern hardware aswell as fixing some bugs with existing hardware support.
We put effort in optimizing the performance of Neptune by providing tweaks to kernel that speed up the write speed on USB thumb drives for example.
Neptune 7.5 also provides a new solution for a complete system backup called Timeshift. It allows you to save a whole snapshot of your system and restore it even if your system is totally broken. You can even restore from a live system as long as you have the backup saved somewhere accessible.
Some slight tweaks make it easier to work on the terminal. We added the airline theme to vim to provide a more consistent experience together with our powerline terminal theme.
Software updates allow you to enjoy the newest and best web experience with Chromium 104 aswell as Thunderbird 91.12 and VLC 3.0.17
Last but not least an early beta of the brand new persistent creator is also included in the last ISO. Please be aware this is far from ready and only works with USB thumbdrives for now to create a separate partition on the drive. You need to manually bootup with "persistence" boot option to use that partition.
As always you can find the new version on our download page. Existing Neptune 7 installations can update as usual via the Update Manager.
