The July was very busy month for me and almost gone, so it’s time to drop a few lines.

What’s new?
– Sparky 4.6.1 STB with small changes has been released
– Sparky 5.0 “Nibiru” based on Debian testing “Buster” has been released
– added new packages to the repos: antimicro & lutris
– Sparky’s Linux kernel updated up to the latest version 4.12.4

New iso images of Sparky 5.0 special edition (GameOver, Multimedia and Rescue) based on Debian testing “Buster” are on the way; stay tuned.

There is a nice review of “SparkyLinux 5: Great All-Purpose Distro for Confident Linux Users” by Jack M. Germain www.linuxinsider.com/story/84704.html
