Now, the Kwort Linux team has released a new stable version, Kwort Linux 4.3.5. It includes pulseaudio which now is very stable, with the last stable relase almost a year old, and upgraded toolchains such as GCC 10.2.0, Glibc 2.32, and Binutils 2.35.1.
Albeit, the most significant change in Kwort 4.3.5 is the upgraded kernel from the previous version 4.19.46 to the new LTS (long-term support) version 5.10.1.
What's New in Kwort Linux 4.3.5 Release?
Aside from the kernel update, Kwort Linux 4.3.5 has also upgraded other toolchains and compiler, including LLVM 11.0.0, Glibc 2.32, GCC 10.2.0, and Binutils 2.35.1.
The previous version 4.3.4 removed Kwort-choosers package, replacing it with kwort-tools and the new kwort-mixer; the kwort-tools now allow encryption via /etc/rc.d/encryption using /etc/etab. And the kwort-mixer has also received some improvements which makes it more stable.
But the Kwort’s kpkg package manager remains same version 130, even though Kwort 4.3.5 included mirror kdb files in the installation to solve issues with the earlier releases. With the latest browser versions including: Google Chrome: 87.0.4280.88 and Mozilla Firefox 84.0, which are all available in the mirror.
