OK time to make it official..

We had considered releasing before Christmas, but we're not gonna. Basically we want to spend a little bit more time on Solus 4 and release it in January, when ready.

The "major items" are basically the Software Center and Linux Driver Management, which both relate to one another. DoFlicky is being killed, and LDM is going to be the (agnostic) library and system for dynamic detection of hardware and drivers (GPUs, PCI devices, hotplug of USB devices, etc).

We're working hard on LDM right now so that in Solus 4, you'll be automatically prompted to install drivers via notifications, which will then lead to the new Software Center. Driver management will be centralised! Additionally, we'll be supporting hotplug events, so if you plug in a Razer mouse, you'll be prompted to install razer-drivers, same thing for printers, etc.

Anyway, January is where its at, and that gives us a couple weeks to get everything signed, sealed and delivered. Plus it'll allow us to kick off the new year on a strong note, and everyone gets to enjoy their holidays :)

Also, relevant earworm:

Friday sync is in - Linux 4.14.4 and eopkg automatic removal/orphan support being the key highlights.
