Today is the day! — Nitrux 1.1.0 is available to download

We are pleased to announce the launch of Nitrux 1.1.0. This new version brings together the latest software updates, bug fixes, performance improvements, and ready-to-use hardware support.

Nitrux 1.1.0 is the first version of our 1.1 series of releases. This new series introduces fundamental changes in the way our Linux distribution works. With Nitrux 1.1.0 we’re adding two new components: znx and MauiKit. znx is our Operating Systems manager tool, and MauiKit is our UI Framework that uses Qt Quick Controls 2. We recommend reading all of our previous articles to get up to speed with how Nitrux works from this point forward.

Nitrux 1.1.0 is available for immediate download.

What's new:

- Built on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.
- Updated kernel to version 4.19.0.
- Updated Plasma 5 (5.14.2), KDE Apps (18.08.2), KF5 (5.52.0) and Qt 5 (5.11.2).
- Updated Nomad Look and Feel.
- Updated Luv icon theme.

Known issues:

- Included VLC AppImage does not include an icon. If you'd like to provide a replacement for it feel free to contact us.

Notes
- Nitrux, by default, uses OpenGL (3.1) acceleration as the rendering backend, this is to provide users of a great experience when they are running the distribution in Live mode on their computers. This default setting affects the performance in VirtualBox since the 3D rendering is entirely software based. We do recommend that in this case, testers use XRender instead. We also suggest that users don't attempt to install the guest additions from the VirtualBox Guest ISO or install the package using APT and this is because the Linux kernel since version 4.16 does already include the video driver and related modules.

Thanks to the users that have collaborated with troubleshooting this issue. Thanks for your feedback!.

We have updated our release announcement with the following information.

"Our ISO is a standard ISO-9660 bootable image. However, our ISO dramatically differs from other conventional Linux ISO files in that ours is not a hybrid-ISO image and this means that the ONLY way to use Nitrux is deploying the ISO image using znx.

You can deploy the ISO in an existing Linux environment by downloading the AppImage and initializing the device.

Flashing the ISO file raw to a storage device will result in a standard Live system, for example using ImageUSB, Etcher or dd. However, this will ONLY work on pure-UEFI platforms, for example, Intel FCLGA1151 and AMD AM4.

Writing the ISO raw to a USB device and booting in hardware that is older than the mentioned platforms will not boot the ISO at all even if the hardware does support UEFI, for example in AMD AM3+ motherboards.

We DO NOT recommend that you flash the ISO raw to a storage device AT ALL, please use znx."

We will also update our quick start guide.

Developers interested in creating Maui apps assemble!. #Nitrux #Maui #Linux #KDE #Kirigami
This is vvave making use of Mauikit as a framework that is installed system-wide on KDE Neon. So not more submodules and static linking, and much more easier to distribute the Maui apps and also a lot easier for interested developers to create new Maui apps.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Nitrux 1.0.15. This new version brings together the latest software updates, bug fixes, performance improvements and ready-to-use hardware support.

Nitrux 1.0.15 presents an updated hardware stack, among other things. The recently included Linux kernel 4.18.5, as well as an updated graphics stack, adds support for newer computers and hardware in Nitrux.

In addition, new patches for system vulnerabilities are included in this release so you can rest assured that you are using the most secure version of Nitrux.

After installing Nitrux 1.0.15, you will have the latest versions of many pre-installed software packages. That means that you will need fewer software updates after installing Nitrux on your computer.

What's new:

- Updated packages from Ubuntu/cosmic.
- Updated kernel to version 4.18.5.
- Updated Plasma 5 (5.13.4), KDE Apps (18.08), KF5 (5.50.0) and Qt 5 (5.11.1).
- Updated Kvantum to version 0.10.9.
- Added Mesa (18.1.5) drivers for Vulkan, VDPAU, and support for VP-API.
- Added microcode updates for Intel (3.20180807a.1) and AMD (3.20180524.1) processors.
- Added support for exFAT drives.
- Added support for btrfs partitions in Calamares (default is ext4).
- Added Kcalc.
- Disabled KDE Wallet subsystem.

Known issues:
