It was a pretty hectic month for me... so much, in fact, that the 31 days passed and I could not post a single entry on this blog.
It is not that there were not interesting topics to write about. I could have posted, for example, about the release of the Elive beta 2.9.22, which promised Korean and Japanese support. However, I could not even get the release.
Or I could have posted about LibreOffice, or Firefox Quantum, or the Microsoft-wants-Valve horror...
To be honest, January flew. I was busy with a writing project on the first two weeks of the month. Almost simultaneously, my daughter started her summer courses in preparation for her new school.
The weather got crazy and temperature dropped. I got sick.
Then, during the third week, more courses. And another writing project with a very close deadline popped up. I had a relapse on the last week.
Now, I am getting better and January is gone, so this is my first post of the year:
The beta 2.9. 26 of Elive is now available!
According to the release announcement, this new version includes:
- Greatly improved designs for clock and battery, clock is shown by default, the battery includes intuitive colors useful for show the status
- Improved initial configurations for hardware accelerated features with optimal autodetections and skipping in not supported ones like virtualmachines

- Desktop application launchers improvements, fixes and new includes, a new application is included to restart to a new clean desktop configuration, improved ebook support

(Interesting... My last post of 2017 and the first post of 2018 are on Elive...)
