Plans for 2016
« on: January 06, 2016, 03:21:06 pm »
New year and new jobs to keep it running.

Releases for 2016:

4.3 - 20th of April
4.4 - 20th of August
4.5 - 20th of December

To do:
1. Adding translations of all sparky tools which are already made
2. No more ideas in this moment, add yours to the discussion

Next, next...
Debian testing Stretch should be freezed on the end of this year, and should be released the next (2017) year as stable.
Sparky should move to ver. 5 next year (based on Debian testing Buster) so we need a new code name and new artwork for that.

Sparky IS cool. I use KDE x64 on fast machines, and LXQT on slower. Geeee just flies.
CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT COMES UP IN NEW VERSIONS.
¿is there any predicted changelog, (not counting debian changes)

thanks for great work

That's right, no new post doesn't say that there is nothig happens.
According to the topic: http://sparkylinux.org/forum/index.php/topic,3423.0.html I still wok on the MinimalISO which lets you install a minimal base system + one of many desktops of your choice + few apps.
Should be finished soon.
