Post by: GMaq on April 12, 2017, 11:17:42 AM
AV Linux 2017.4.9 Released!

An updated 2017 ISO for AV Linux has been released, it features a new Audio Routing system,
many refinements and improvements and probably the most stable and functional collection of
Applications across the board to date! The older AV Linux 2016.8.30 ISO's are currently still
in the FTPs and will be phased out soon, make sure to download the 2017.4.9 release.

Those images of Canadians spending the winter huddled by the fire,
with a jug of moonshine, and a stock of moose jerky, appear to be
a figment of hollywood moviemakers.

Well, I suppose you could always put a well supplied
computer desk close to the fire  ;)

Congrats on the great new version!

Congrats Glenn!

This looks nice.
Don't think I have time in the near future to try it out....but it looks good.
Stretch sounds better to me than testing.

Ha

GMaq

Can you give me a little help.   
I installed  2017 64 yesterday on a new hd on my quad desktop .  When I went to setup WiFi networking  no option for infrastructure in Network Manager  makes no sense to me that 1.4.4 has no infrastructure setting ?  the usb WiFi dongels show up ok
I spent hours trying everything I can but will not connect.  I don't have the option for a LAN setup as the router is next door. I have to use WIFI.  I'm using avl 6.0.4 on my laptop to write this.  Is there a 64 bit of 6.0.4 ? 

I love the speed of the 64 bit
What about 2017 32 bit will it have the same issues.

One other issue 
If you open a terminal in file Manager   then close the terminal  File manager locks up and will not respond  warning widow open
after a while saying widow not responding .     this is in avl 2017 64 .

- Completely new PulseAudio/JACK2 Audio Routing (thanks Hermann Meyer).

Hi GMaq,
I believe there is still an option for AVLinux to remain Pulseaudio free distro. And the way to achieve that could be this app:
https://github.com/i-rinat/apulse (https://github.com/i-rinat/apulse)
In a matter of fact, the only noticeable issue with Pulse is that the built-in volume control controls the Pulse volume, but not the Jack volume.
PS: Looking forward for the next AVL installment, based on Debian stable

Cheers mate,
Totalchaos
